    Yeah I suppose that the bowling could use a little experience, would be a great attack if Pollock was still around. Just a shame that players like Kallis and Ntini have lost their edge when you have a fire cracker like Steyn leading the attack.

    Samaraaweera or Jayawardene for that matter have really not been tested in this partnership. Jayawardene has batted well though.

    my god its like SA is trying to chase 330+, how many short wide balls can they send down in a single 50 over innings.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    I wasn't pointing towards you Faisal.

    Any ways, don't think Sri Lanka will get 330. South African death bowling is good. Still a good total though.

    Steyn not bowling his full 10 is criminal.

    WTF Graeme?

    Parnell and Styen bowled very well, but only time will tell if it was a little too late........

    SL has the bowling to contain SA.....i think it all depends on how the SA get going in the chase...the first 10-15 overs will decide the game....

    And his economy rate was the second best among all the bowlers today.

    Morkel, Kallis, and Parnell were quite a disappointment for SA today.

    Was a Kolpak last year at Derby, but not this, so assume he's available now.

    As a "Cape Coloured" I'd have thought he'd be more likely to benefit from quotas than anything else tho.
