    Would be a bit strange if they do pick Bumrah, but I suppose he won't play anyways so meh. Other than that the squad picks itself really.

    Can't wait. Hopefully all three of Steyn, Philander and Rabada are fit and raring to go. We've only seen that combination in what? Three matches or so?

    The Ashes will be a nice little appetizer to this main course.

    Do we know anything regarding Morkel and du Plessis injuries? Are they recovered in time for the Zim Test?

    The first Ashes Test was a bit bitter and lacked any proper substance... hopefully the rest of the appetizer courses improve. Else I will just be looking forward to the mains....

    Morne's situation. Good chance he will come back for Northerns and Steyn will probably look to get a 3-day game in there.

    Morne Morkel, who is on the mend from a side strain, also looks set to play a part in South Africa's busiest home season since readmission. He is currently bowling at 80% and should be at full capacity in early December.

    However, Morne's brother and Titans' T20 captain, Albie, told reporters in Pretoria that he only expects Morne to be fit for the playoffs of the Ram Slam in mid-December and at that stage, it is unlikely he will get a game. CSA have a policy that any player returning from injury must play some form of domestic cricket before they can be considered for the national team. That means Morne may also look to the provincial structures or even club cricket to prove his fitness.

    Predictions:

    Highest runscorer: Kohli for India, Elgar for SA
    Highest wickettaker: Bhuvi for India, Rabada for SA
    Surprise performer: Rohit Sharma
    Biggest disappointment: Steyn breaking his shoulder again and announces his retirement
    Miscellaneous prediction: QdK will be the only guy Ashwin bowls well against
    Series Result: India 2-1

    Look at you, being optimistic and all (apart from the Steyn prediction).

    I hope there is some way that Steyn can be magical and we still manage to win.

    I want Steyn to be fit and **** us up just as much as I want India to win the series.

    Rabada looking really good, Steyn coming back....

    Philander to take most wickets at CT. Rabada at Wanderers, Steyn at Centurion. All end with 18 wickets. Maharaj with 6.

    Top scorer for SA, Markram after realizing Indian speedsters aren't that good... Amla 2nd, just because. India to bowl SA out only once during the series.

    Kohli retires after his only test series loss unable to take the heartache...
    Indian topscorer is Pujara because he is the best and most beautiful Indian batsmen...
    India realize they still don't have any quality speedsters and Ashwin is best bowler!

    If they don't play Temba and go with the all-rounder I think they may go with Morris. Especially with the 3 tests probably being on our most bouncy wickets out of our main 5 test venues.

    Can't help but feel that our chances will hugely depend on the quality of our slip catching. Kohli will definitely stand there and put down a few.

    Also how well Hardik Pandya does. Because they are going to go with him instead of an extra front line batsman.
