NEHRA DRAWS INDIA NEARER


The question that was ringing in Fordsburg as SA scored 220 on a slow Newlands pitch. Was it enough? It looked like it was enough. I realy thought that the inclusion of FAF and Imran Tahir would be the right call. FAF was in but there was no Tahir. Outside Banjos shop a few timers voiced their dissapointment on Tahirs exclusion. Now the question on many lips is Will Tahir make the World Cup squad. SA did well after a disappointing start with debutant FAF Du Plessis doing well and scoring a 50. JP complimented him well and on a Newlands wicket that seemed to favour the side batting first SA looked ok. After Singhs figures it again proved that Tahir would be lethal as a strike bowler when India batted second.

FAF on debut did well under pressure

India struggled at first and as I headed to the gym and got on the Bicycle I seen Yusuf Phatan enter and that man can be destructive as he slayed Botha for 3 massive sixes. Raina and Pathan changed the game. Then Baajie weilded the willow with two important sixes and India did what we couldnt do. Negra cleared the ring in the end. So where did we go wrong. We were lax in the field again and as the squad gets picked tonight who should go ad who should stay? This was the first time ever that Smith lost a ODI International at Newlands as India go 2-1 up in the series

  3. Well there we go. Petersen should have been left out.Surprised Ingram is there. What are your thoughts on the squad.? Did we leave out any one that should have made the trip

  4. Zahira Kharsany via fb Parnell should have actually been left out. As a seamer he is no use on the sub and honestly has been under performing. van Wyk likely 2nd keeper or rather make him keeper and put Abie back in the field.

  5. dont rate Peterson. Rather call Omar Henry Dave Rundle from the past instead of him...or better Johan van de wath as a better all rounder

  6. Azhar Moola via fb Tim Shaw. Lanky chap remember him. Langeveld for peterson need death bowlers. No need for 3 spinners.

  7. Ya Langeveldt also. Maybe Tahir wont even play and Botha and Petersen will Play. Azhar u were punting for Jonatan Vandeyar. Can this squad win us the Cup.
    Spinners is a big talking point because of the pitches and curry on the sub continent. Who would you say was the greatest spinner South Africa ever produced.
    There were many,Kourie,Eksteen,Rundle,Shaw, Omar "the first brown man to represent ...SA" Henry,Symcox and now the latest crop
