    As a "Cape Coloured" I'd have thought he'd be more likely to benefit from quotas than anything else tho.
    Did he not retire from international cricket after some sort of quota controversy when the squad to tour Bangladesh was announced?

    I don't get the reasoning behind giving Malinga 1 over???

    But anyways, SA on their way to another choking loss.

    Why did Smith chose to field anyways???? It looks like a good batting track..

    Its not a choking loss really. They just played **** and SL well.

    Not every ODI or T20 loss in a world tournament is a choke.

    Just switched on - Smith and Kallis look up for giving this a go. Will be good to see how the Saffas manage the spin.

    I should take my words back on giving the Proteas the choking tag too early........

    Lets see if they prove me wrong.

    SL played good indeed....now they need to bowl well......

    This is a great head-to-head, AB vs. Mendis. I reckon whoever wins this, wins the game.

    If you are chasing against Sri Lanka and the game is even when the spinners come on you generally back the Lankans to pull it off. That's what it looks like right now. Smith definitely brought SA back into the game with some great shots through the off side but that was a piece of magic by Mendis.

    Kallis is out and the RRR climbs over 7. I think it's officially Sri Lanka's game to lose.

    Oh dear, this tournament could be a walk-over by Sri Lanka. Perhaps India or Pakistan could knock them out.
