    It's not a particularly interesting thought, but they really should just do a T20 tri nations thing with NZ ala the Asian Cup

    That could be cool.

    Maybe add Zim too and make a little mini-quad series.

    So since his is a thing.

    I would like to see the following team against Aus:

    QDK
    Amla
    AB
    Faf
    Rossouw
    Miller
    Morris
    Abbott
    Rabada
    Steyn
    Imran Tahir

    I know People say AB should open, but the only way that happens for me is if we drop Amla and I cant do that... Amla generally uses the powerplay well and then can bat through the innings, class is class. QDK and AB give all the striking ability we need at the top of the order. The rest of team plays itself. I think Duminy might still be given the go ahead in front of Roussouw though; Morris has shown his ability to finish the innings if needed and I would much rather have a genuine wicket taking bowler in Steyn/Abbott over Wiese. Creates a little of a long tail but for me the top six should be doing the work anyway...

    You sure your team gets past mister lorgat? You only have 3 poc players in your team.

    The team I would play:

    1.Amla
    2.AB
    3.QDK
    4.Faf
    5.JP
    6.Miller
    7.Wiese
    8.Morris
    9.Steyn
    10.Radaba
    11.Tahir

    Ps. Steve Smith needs to shut up trying to tell the SA groundsman how to prepare pitches...Didn't see him demanding spinning pitches during the aussie summer to prepare...

    Wiese definitely. 14 matches 21 wickets at 15.52 econ 7.03 s/r 13.2
    Best strike rate of any South African.

    While not clear, my comment regarding Duminy probably getting in ahead of Rossouw is for this reason. I just really hope Duminy can sort his bowling then he could be key for the T20`s in India.

    Sorry disagree with this (not the stats, but they will change)... Wiese is a good player but he is picked for his batting more than his bowling, and my belief is he can hit the Domestic bowlers a mile but will struggle against top quality international stuff he has done nothing batting wise in T20... and i`ve seem him get hit 2 many times(domestically) to trust him as my 5th bowler. I would much rather player a genuine wicket taking bowler in Abbott, who is also a good death bowler. Like in any cricket, wickets win you the matches.

    In the bigger scale for the SA cricket team, the problem we have is that we do not have any world class all-rounders atm, somebody who can make it into the team based on either there bowling or batting standalone, but can also contribute elsewhere. This means we keep picking "allround" players who while domestically good I believe are not adequate for international level as neither skill actually stands up under scrutiny. I think only one all-rounder has a place in the SA T20 team. Wiese I don`t think will improve, Morris has lots of potential, so I pick Morris.

    Would be a big mistake to push Warner down the order

    Warner
    Khawaja
    Watson
    Smith
    Maxwell
    Marsh
    Faulkner
    Neville
    Zampa (fitness permitting)
    Hazlewood
    NCN

    Tough for Arun who is apparently the best t20 batsman in the world

    Right, he captained a game against India where Smith was playing which is why I thought he was the new captain.

    Harsh to drop someone who averages 41 @ 150 in T20Is but it seems like the right choice

    Is that sarcastic or true???

    Is this the best Aus team available for the T20 and World cup? (taking away Starc who is injured) Sorry I have not been keeping up with the Aus teams much.. Or do you expect to see a different team in India?
