Chahal, Kuldeep, Kedar Jadhav all are playing along with Bhuvaneshwar and Bumrah in the pace attack.

I am surprised as Durban is always known as a track where ball does a lot. Ok Pandya is playing.

Bumrah, Bhuvi, Chahal and Kuldeep will bowl 40 and Hardik and Kedar 10 overs between them. Batting for India looks a little dodgy. Rahane gives some comfort.

Safrica better rethink their team with no ABDV and Morris at 7.

134/5 after 28 overs, this is going to take some saving by Safrica now.

Still with batting at 8, and Tahir, Morkel and Rabada, not impossible.

But I'm not sure Phelukwayo has it with the bat as much as Safrica will want.

But Pretorious and Mulder while established batsmen, don't quite fill his quota spot.

Ball swings a lot under lights at Durban.Difficult Chase. SA scored at least 30 runs more than what India would have wanted them to.

If we post anything from another site, we usually give credit to it, in the form of a link or at least mentioning it.

Afridi has retired.

So has Nehra.

Bhaji, Gayle, Herath and Malik are current evergreens. Herath prolly has best odds to make it to 2020's.

I put together a full list of 90's intls still playing in a previous thread with Boycs.

Thats interesting. Would like to see the names. Yeah, Herath and Malik too never seem to retire.

Afridi has made so many comebacks you never know when he is retiring and then making a comeback.

Team BCCI is on a roll here.
Looks like that Johannesburg Test lifted them so much that even the players who weren't part of it are now inspired to a different level.
Wonderful to see Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav pick up wickets again.
This BCCI squad, led from the front by Kohli, is on its way to all-time greatness.

South Africa too selected two wrist spinners, just like Indians, hoping to beat India at their own game.

Outcome- Indian wrist spinners toyed with South African batsmen. Later, Indian batsmen toyed with South African wrist spinners. :)

You need to use some sort of code to help tell your jinxed apart from genuine praise

It can get confusing at times.As you don't know which team he is actually supporting.

Probably Raja prefers it that way.

:grin:
Yes, predictability is a dampener. Ask Bhajji. :-)

Rather keep batsmen guessing.
Like a Kuldeep Yadav does.

One simple rule of thumb in my case though.
If I'm praising BCCI quicks, it's most probably genuine.
If I'm praising BCCI batsmen, it's most probably not.
Exception is when they've genuinely impressed me - like when they showed character in Joburg.
But this is rare.
If I'm praising Rohit Sharma (or any Mumbaikar), it's most likely very grudging. :-)
