    Just avoid dressing like a refugee and youíll be fine with that accent.

    Nice part of the country (where I should go more often)!

    Compare that to our ****show
    Their bowling was awesome,I watched only the SA innings and I must say most of our batsmen can be proud of how they batted,unfortunately the Indians field placing and bowling were top notch,very difficult for our boys to get it away.

    Miller and Klaasen had too much to do,with our bowling failing and India bowling so well it was very difficult for our boys to score.

    What is encouraging is that besides Duminy every other SA batsman batted positively and didn't waste balls needlessly.I'm actually proud of the way they batted considering just how well the Indians bowled and set field placing,with the right support on the other end they could have won us this game.
    Once more into the fray
    Into the last good fight Iíll ever know

    JP must bugger off to provincial cricket - he doesn't have what it takes at international level any longer.

    You know there's a problem in SA cricket when fans say things like "decent effort" and "proud of their batting".

    All I see is mediocrity in all departments. A good effort is when you lose by a few runs in a Pro20, not 28.
