Danish Kaneria at the time was in decent form IIRC. SA had spinners like Robin Pietersen and Paul Harris who're OK, but they have too good a pace attack to field such spinners.
Hype him up all you want, but 40+ average is not remotely exceptional, doesn't matter the context, team he played for etc. (I rate him, and like him, to say this AGAIN)
