    SA t20 tournament

    Weather is a bit crappy in Gauteng today, let's hope it clears later and the rest of the week.

    SA t20 tournament

    Nothing better than a team from Cape Town doing badly.

    SA t20 tournament

    I think there would be nothing wrong with getting Brevis in the squad so he can start working with the Proteas support staff and getting used to the environment, we all know he will play for SA fairly soon, so no harm in getting him in the broader set up so long. Just as long as people don't...

    SA t20 tournament

    He's probably the senior batter now and he has to start converting some of those starts and fifties. His recent stats have been good but one hundred in 50 Tests for a specialist bat is simply not good enough.

    SA t20 tournament

    Ja, TB seems to be a changed batter recently, taking a break after the Aus series seems to have done him the world of good. Now to repay the faith and start getting some Test hundreds.

    Cricket Books

    Read Crickonomics by Stefan Szymanski and Tim Wigmore this month. Was aa decent read, and had some good insights while other chapters were (to me) pretty self-evident. Probably worth a read but not as good as Cricket 2.0 which Wigmore wrote with Freddie Wilde. Also read Robin Smith's The Judge...

    Maybe if she'd prayed quicker God would have let her run quicker.

    SA t20 tournament

    SA20 finishes on 11 Feb so he'll easily be able to fit both in.

    Faf would sort out Eskom, what a legend.

    I'm happy for Brevis to play in the Proteas next T20 series but people must just manage their expectations.

    *Official* South Africa vs England (3 ODI):Jan 27-Feb 04, 2023 in SAfrica

    Brevis is a once-in-a-generation player but he's also not the Messiah either annd we mustn't place so much pressure on him. Ask the English how many people have been heralded as the Next Big Thing in Batting and then either have middling careers (Hick, Ramprakash) or have careers that don't...

    South Africa team selection

    Du Plooy apparently told CSA to GGF, so I doubt we'll see him in the green-and-gold anytime soon.

    SA t20 tournament

    Some good talent on display in this tournament. If SA can just get its selection right we can challenge any of the big T20I sides, including the Poms.

    TB has also gotten faaaaaarrrrrr more rope than most other guys would have got.

    South Africa team selection

    Yeah, it's a tricky balance, I get what you're saying re: journeymen, but sometimes a 31-year-old with ten seasons of FC cricket behind him will do a job a young oke might not be able to. Think Stephen Cook is a good example, was never an oke people were talking about but forceed his way into...

    Dude is pissing runs and looks class, let him have a go. You are always saying we should get new guys in so why not Hermann.
