ALL THE WAY FROM THE CARRIBEAN
I caught up with SA Team manager Dr Moosajee in the Caribbean and found out what is the Doctors medicine on tour over there. Firstly we chatted about the euphoria surrounding 2010 and the atmosphere out here in South Africa. From a cricketing perspective the boys are looking good and relaxed and the Doctor was happy with the form of Hashim Amla and the younger players like David Miller. The Doc says its good to see the younger guys taking up their opportunity and performing
I obviously expressed disappointment on South Africas form during the Pro 20 World Cup...and grinded the Doc for some answers.
He said that the team were disappointing and each player is aware of the fact. He also expressed that the key is to build toward the World Cup next year and outlined consistency as the key issue as well as outlining many areas they need to work on to move forward. The players know that they have let the media down
I outlined that many are calling for Smiths head and asked the Doc what he has to say about Smith leading the country presently and in the future. He lept to the defense of Smith saying that Smith has just recovered from injury. In Australia the media hailed him as Captain Marvel and the only thing Smith hasnt done is brought a major trophy home and the media begin calling for his head. The Doc believes that Smith should be given the chance and you cannot blame a Captain when the whole team were not up to par.
The Doc also said that the team is well and just staying away from Jamaica due to the state of emergency. Else all is well with regards to safety,
On Hashim Amla the Doc says he is in a good place and in superb form. Coming from leading county side Nottingham to four successive victories and performing well here in the Caribbean Hash is an integral part of the World Cup Plans next year.His dedication and commitment has no doubt instrumented his place alongside Smith for the future.
Hash is in great fiqr.
With regards to the Proteas supporting Bafana Bafana, The Doc says that they are fully behind the team and expressing tremendous support. They are proudly behind Bafana Bafana and Wayne Parnell, Rusty Theron and Paul Harris along with cricketing SA are performing the Diski Dance all the way in the Caribbean,
Swoosh0018 wishes the DOC,HASH and the PROTEAS all the best on there tour.
