    South Africa tour of India, 2019

    Is Faf du Plessis missing a trick by batting too low at No. 5? Someone's been trawling these parts. :unsure:

    South Africa tour of India, 2019

    :ROFL: Someone said fight. So he could've chosen mettle. But I suppose he settled for something more fitting. Otherwise he would've bottled it too and buried his head tightly in the sand. Man!

    South Africa tour of India, 2019

    Except it wasn't really bottle. Just normal batting on a flat pitch, in which overall the South African batsmen actually scored far less runs than they should have. No discounting that the toss played a huge part because of how the final day plays in India, but apart from the odd uneven bounce...

    South Africa tour of India, 2019

    I've never had any doubts about Bavuma's LOI credentials. Always felt he'd do a bit better at them than Tests. If Bavuma was playing for India, they would have won. He rotated the strike selflessly and didn't try and slog(then get out) when under pressure after one or two balls. This batting...

    2019 Rugby World Cup

    :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL: This is hilarious and informative. I think Russia (like USA and Fiji) are confused though. In Rugby Union you have to build your game around a solid pack. Interestingly all those three sides are devoting a lot of resources to their 7s game not the other way round, unless it's...

    South Africa tour of India, 2019

    Doesn't seem like there'll be ODIs. I thought Rassie/Bavuma would get the captaincy nod, but if QdK got T20 captaincy he'll definitely be named ODI captain when the time comes. I wouldn't discount Faf beign retained either.

    The Proteas - Our Team!

    Playing India in India IS a tough prospect. New youngsters will be a breathe of fresh air though. West Indies and Sri Lanka have had a bit of that lately, even though they were at home. 2016 a young Sri Lanka molested a tough Australia in Sri Lanka. Few saw it coming. A young West Indies...

    I would have averaged over 50 were it not for that guy. Until the # appeared, I was the closest thing to Picasso, of anything in a Proteas shirt with a bat in hand, that you miserable fans had. Who am I? :giggle:

    Ugly rugby and Cheetahs don't often belong in the same sentence. I've always wondered what really goes on when a team turns up after a week's preparation and they look so under-prepared. Have to blame the coach/captain's pre-match talk. What else could it be?

    Breath-taking stuff. They taught the Crasaders a lesson. Hard as it was to take, one just had to appreciate excellence in action. The Chiefs have this strong motivation&understanding because they share a common purpose. They like to think of themselves as "THE" indegenous side of NZ rugby...

    Stormers trying to do the unthinkable here. Should whither away as the game progresses. I hope the Sharks fans have have made peace with the fact that they're heading back to the Shark Tank empty-handed today. Second loss in a row for them. Cheetahs by 12pts! :D I see the Crusaders swiftly...
