    Philander does have a higher batting average than De Bruyn...

    I agree that it is a bit of a cop out, but Olivier was the man of the series against Pakistan, so it would be very harsh to leave him out. And the track record of the other three makes it very difficult not to pick them. But while it's probably OK to do this against Sri Lanka, Philander at 7 is not a long-term solution, so at some point they are going to have to make what admittedly is a very tough decision, but they can't keep going in with all four of those quicks and a spinner as it weakens the batting too much.

    Elgar isn't in his element right now.

    I do feel that it is risky to go with 6 batsmen. If you get a few good balls and 3 for nothing you in trouble.

    Amla needs some runs at his home venue for once. Who knows if he plays another test here.

    Apparently Dar just did not signal for it, for some unknown reason?

    Amla remains 20 runs away from going past Graeme Smith as SAs 2nd leading run scorer in tests.

    Good start from us. Making use of the conditions..fear for our batting those as with this team, one in the top 6 has to score big and currently, no one in our side is scoring...

    This should flatten out to a good batting strip if recent history is anything to go by. So for Sri Lanka to get 3 early poles with us going in with 6 batsmen could be massive.

    His ball v Elgar was just running in off the bowling angle and its what made him play.

    Again the ball for Markram gives addage to saying getting the ball just to move enough is better than too much.

    Absolutely agree, that slight seam in from a left armer is ideal..

    I hope he gets it soon.... because after the WC I'm very quickly coming around to the idea that my favourite players needs to retire (get dropped). To much young talent available.
