S Africa been talking it up big,bigger than Australia,but they been awful.Australia do have problems 6 and 7,don't be suprised if they dropped after 1st or 2nd test.As for Usman their no good spinner there,so he might have a good series.

Will Khawaja or Shaun Marsh be Warner's partner?

Or is it the new guy Mennie?

Oh, Mennie is a Bowler.

So either Khawaja or Marsh...

Cricinfo actually list him as a player of the USA: http://www.espncricinfo.com/usa/cont...er/439288.html

Interesting to see how Kagiso does with wickets that are know to assist pacers.

Best overseas pacer to play in Australia was Curtly Ambrose...I hope Kagiso take note.

Yes 6/1.
They are talking it up in the media too much,2 test wins in like 13/15 games,thats with Rabada.
As i said where we will lose it in batting nevill and Mitch Marsh,2 a less extent Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawajah.
S Africa talking up 4 pacers,but they are mad to not take in a spinner.

They took spinners...Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj..even Elgar is a poor man's Mooen Ali..

And that is what I expected..Maharaj is the longer format guy...Shamsi is more limited overs...We'll gave to wait and see how he can handle 5 days of test cricket.

But then again, looking at the FC stats of both Shamsi and Maharaj I found out that Shamsi has a better average than Maharaj....and he is only 3 wickets behind Maharaj:


Shamsi- 272 wicket @24.90
Maharaj- 275 wickets @26.61

Both of them are 26 years old

Ok thought Shamsi younger,Shamsi has shown he can go for runs,like Zampa.
Maharaj more orthordox and tighter,and you need to bowl tighter on the WACA.The doctor should work well for maharaj.
Simon Harmer is tighter too but because of quotas he missed out,now he signed a kolpak deal with a county.

You sure about him being the 12th man? I read somewhere that he was going to debut. Hmm.

^^That is sudden.I'm pretty sure he was in. Why would they do that? Siddle, seriously.

Now Australia are starting with 2 fast men returning from Injury: Starc and Siddle.

Yeh well,Sids pace up again,he does do line and length,he did hit Daniel Hughes with a bouncer recently,more aggressive.
I think bowling wise the balance is good,Nathan will bowl with the doctor.
I can't help feel S Africa if it a road is silly playing 4 pacmen,I mean Dumney is your spinner?

OMG. Why did the tours have to be back to back? This is the reason cricket is getting so boring. At least change it up a little and don't have two series between the same two teams back to back. I am now more interested to see Aus and SA vs Pak, NZ etc. Some time ago India and Srilanka had like millions of series between them as well.
