    Why do you think that?

    I don't think South Africa will find it hard to adjust to the conditions in India. They have toured what, twice in two years ? They may struggle in Sri Lanka though.

    None of our group games are in SL, and only if we top our group will we play a QF in SL.

    Surely SA is aiming to top the group though...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Whatever they aim to do, they choke, so I guess Marius is being realistic.

    I really fear Amla in this kind of form, and De Villiers etc. coming in after he has set a platform could get quite hard to handle..

    Strating XI: Smith, Amla, Kallis, De Villiers, Duminy, Ingram, Du Plessis, Steyn, Morkel, Tahir, Tsotsobe.
    Decent team but I'd swap out Ingram from MVW. Might as well bite the bullet and play 7 batsmen with a long tail. Australia did it for ages, India has the same set up. The reality is we can't field a decent bowling allrounder.

    Anyways, it won't happen because of the quota. Getting the 4th quota player based on the current options removes a lot of quality and balance, and the fact that Tahir cannot be considered one is utter bull****. ****ing politics.

    Wait, why on earth isn't Tahir covered by the quota? I understand the reasons behind having the quota, obviously, but if it leads to picking Robin Peterson over Imran Tahir than clearly something has gone wrong.

    Anyway, on the allrounder front, SA will be a lot stronger with Kallis back for that. Kallis and Duminy makes for a better 5th option than India are using.

    It's not official but it most certainly does exist.

    Yes and no. Somehow it keeps getting brought up by officials and seriously, is Robbie P the most valid solution as a spinning allrounder especially when RVDM had done a decent job supporting Botha?

    Well that point is not even disputable. He wasn't.
