    Icon7 ** South Africa Tour of CW !!! **

    Well the South African Tour of CW will be underway sometime real soon, the schedule is still being finalized with the South African Cricket Board however it should be out shortly.. Its going to be a gruelling 5 test Home series only... So All Eyes on how the CWXI can handle the intensity throughout the 5 tests against a determined and powerful S.African arriving team. But im pretty sure seeing our vast resources and capabilities, and our well experienced team members with the youthful mix, we will put up a huge fight to seek our first series win, and god wouldnt it be sweeter if it came here at our own backyard!

    Anyway Let the discussions begin, etc.. and more news on the tour once the boards come to an agreement on schedule etc.

    Do it Big !!

    Awesome stuff. I'd love to be a part of this fantastic CW XI test lineup and I would love to have a go at the South Africans.

    Lets hope the selectors take my performances of the last few seasons into consideration.

    Excited, very excited!

    hmm who would i pick for such a task..... Broncoman is looking very good in the dev league, as is Masterblaster, not to mention the records of Timewell or Hoy so far this season.

    will certainly be tough picking the side.

    Should be a cracking series. Hopefully some of us youngsters in the dev. league can get a go at the big time. Good luck to the whole team, and in particular to Simon, Andrew, Liam and anyone else from the blues who might get picked.

    But he averages less than 3 runs less than incumbent captain. Strained point, I know.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    If past selections are anything to go by then we won't be seeing any rookies in the side.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Given that several players have retired since the last test series, somebody new has to come in, whether they are rookies or not.
