The Safrikaans Scare Me...

Not long ago I wrote about how Australia's ODI team excited me.

How could they not?

How could any side with a batting order that reads Marsh, Warner, Ponting, Clarke, Hussey, Hussey, Haddin, White, Hopes not excite you?

Well when they get thrashed 4-1 it makes you wonder.

It makes you wonder of the JP Duminys, the AB De Villiers, the Hashim Amlas and the likes.

It scares me to think that if a South African team sans Smith, Boucher, Kallis, Steyn, and Ntini can so easily beat Australia, what can they do to other opposition?

More importantly, what can they do when Smith, Boucher, Kallis, Steyn, and Ntini are back in the side?

Add that to Gibbs, AB, Duminy, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, and anyone out of Amla, Prince, McKenzie, Tsotsobe, Parnell, Harris, Botha, Jaarsveld, or whoever and you have a World Champion.

    am not sure whether boucher and kallis will make the stronger but come on its not that difficult to beat this limping ozies now...

    the best that the fear they used to have in opposition is deep burried somewhere as one kid called tsotsobe can come and take 4 wickets and fancy his chances against them...

    I wouldnt say thats true SP.. maybe India and South Africa can, but not many other teams will be able to beat them...

    Sure NZ beat them today but by 2 wickets that too of the final ball.. they wont be able to do it again this series..
