    Philander has always been a fat slob. It was Kirsten who recognised that even fat slobs can bowl terrible teams out, like Aus, NZ, Pak, Windies.

    Bauvuma harder to argue for. What's his last season like?
    Had a decent 2013/14 season, was 6th in overall runs scored in the Sunfoil Series, scored 714 at an average just under 40. Van Zyl was first, with only Ontong, David White (currently injured), Divan van Wyk, and Andrew Puttick ahead of him.

    He also had a good A series in Australia over the winter, so he as an OK pick. Probably some politics behind his selection, but he is certainly no quota player.

    Same could be said of Rabada, he is there on merit. If you're good enough you're old enough. Remember Steyn made his Test debut when he was only 21.

    Moonda on Cricinfo in her pre-sqaud selection article had Behardien down as a possible pick for the Test squad.

    The mind boggles. She must be the only professional cricket writer who knows nothing about the game.

    Has de Lange actually played in the last 3 years?

    Yeah, played a Test against NZ in 2012, played a couple of ODIs on SA's recent Australasian tour and has been turning out for his franchise.

    Also played on SA A's tour to Aus.

    Can't stand her. How is she actually employed as a ****ing cricket writer?

    Well, I know why she is employed. Doesn't make it right.

    My cousin is a journalist and knows her, and says she is a cow. Also told me she would be nowhere if it wasn't for you-know-who.

    She blocked me on Twitter for asking when she was going to retract her article about Siphe Mzaidume, ha ha!

    haha. She'll be found out. But it's real irritating reading SA cricket articles written by her.

    Windies happily flattening their warm up opposition with all the cheek of a dogwalker OP.

    This is the first I've heard of Sheldon Cottrell and his getting four of the top 5 out in his opening spell, so was surprised to find he'd played a Test, do we make much of him?

    He looked rubbish when I've seen him but he did have good pace. It was just his seam position and inconsistent line and length that looked bad. So it could have been nerves.

    Can a mod change the title? I mean it's all in good fun but come on. It's been that for 2 weeks now.
