It's a meaningless game, I wouldn't read too much into any performances here..
Fair enough. The bulk of this makeshift SA team played (as SA A) a Windies A team and beat them 2 - 1 in South Africa. The Windies team was actually a really strong side, featuring many of the players that just beat Aus in Brisbane - including Shamar Joseph, Kevin Sinclair, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Joshua Da Silva, Kirk McKenzie.
Anyway, expecting SA to pose a tough challenge when the test series starts.

Yeah I think West Indies beating Australia will give every touring team a bit of a lift in the series to come , I don't expect SA to win this series but we should be competitive ..

I am actually very positive , i firmly believe we will see some old school test cricket that people refer to as "Boring" However if we are able to pull it off I'm foreseeing a series win to SA or potentially a drawn series . We have enough batting depth to bat 140+ overs and with the amount of spinners in the lineup this dictates the method this SA team might approach . Time will tell , but still a die heart SA fan . Many selected in this tour has had enough success to warrant a full call up but never got a fair opportunity or any opportunity .
