    Currently in the SA invitaional vs West Indians games the mighty Windies are dominant. Rolled them out yesterday for 125 Cotterell 5fer, Talor 2,Benn 1 and Holder 1 with one runout.

    West Indians replied with a score of 508!! Samuels 200 retired, Smith 174 retired. Ramdin 48 not out and the others were pretty much single figured bar Fudadin and Walton.

    Good work out for the lads and they'll have all day tomorrow to wrap up the game..if nothing else it will give them a little confidence ahead of the first test next week. Cotterrell was the big surprise here and having worked with Amby lately hopefully we're seeing the start of good things to come...he also got a 5fer against Trinidad in the game before he left for SA so he seems to be in good nick...while Samuels seems to have continued the class form he showed in India...well done to him and Smith.

    I remember when SA got bashed by some county team in 2012. Set the tone for the rest of the tour.

    What makes you think Leon is bad? tbh over the last 18 months or so he'd buckled down and scored runs for Guyana and the A-team...might not have been there if Darren Bravo had gone but it's up to him to take this opportunity now.

    Right now my team would probably be

    Brathwaite
    Smith
    Fudadin
    Samuels
    Chanderpaul
    Blackwood
    Ramdin wk (c)
    Taylor
    Benn
    Roach
    Cotterrell

    Then see how that goes...Gabriel and Holder are good options to come in for the 2nd test if Cotts doesn't fire. Blackwood hasn't been in good form at all but the lad has the ability to score quick and once he gets confident he's a very dangerous customer so we just have to hope he takes his chance. Also Fuda scored a ton for the A-team recently, has played tests in England and looked ok so i'd certainly give him the number three spot.

    Needless to say we're gonna need to have Kemar and Jerome at their very best if we are to seriously challenge SA...this is Kemar's first time away in South Africa so i'm looking forward to seeing how he does here having already done well in Aus and England.

    I'd go with Holder over Cottrell, but I don't really know much about Cottrell.

    I'm a complete Marlon fanboy so I hope he does well here. Amazing to watch when he gets going.

    Btw, No Bishoo in the squad?

    Bishy still has a tendency to bowl four good balls followed by a longhop. He's currently doing ok for Guyana but really he's been outdone by his partner in crime (Permaul). If he wants to get back he'll have to dominate the domestic scene again.

    Yeah Jason's height and bounce could do well here but when you look at the issues SA have had against lefties in the past i think Cotterrell will get the nod. When Sheldon is in the mood he can be a real force of nature so it will be interesting to see how he goes if picked...in his one test he played on road in India having just come back from injury, so this should be a new start for him now, no excuses.

    Tbf that match resulted in Boucher's retirement which meant Safrica ended up playing what you could argue was a better side..

    That said I can't see the Windies winning a match in the test series, the gulf between the two sides is just too great.
