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.
