SA to bat first after delayed start

The two teams began the tour with an aim to resume on a successful note after their exit during the Super Eights stage of the World Twenty20. While South Africa have recovered, West Indies have found ways to ensure victory remained elusive. Twice have they floundered chasing gettable scores – and this is virtually the same squad as the one picked for the global tournament that preceded this tour – despite possessing players of experience and those with a style and power valued hugely in the shortest format.

The 50-over version, however, must come as a relief, allowing Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnarine Chanderpaul greater time to build their innings, while giving a misfiring top order, including captain Chris Gayle, an opportunity to rediscover lost touch. On the other hand, West Indies are up against their tormentors on the ODI circuit, having lost their previous six 50-over contests against South Africa in the last three years.

For South Africa, the performances of David Miller and Ryan McLaren were the highlights, and they will watch keenly their transition and development in the longer format, with the 2011 World Cup less than a year away.

    What is your take on the current ‘crisis’ in SA cricket??
    Do you think we need a new captain??

  • @wpw (Comment 5) : You correctly put ”s around crisis. There is no crisis. There’s just a bunch of idiots judging performance on a game of chance incongruously being labeled as “cricket”. It would be like hauling your stock broker over the coals because you told him to put a million bucks on the Powerball and you got a hundred bucks back.

  • Ah, now this isn’t good news. The rain has returned and they’re off the field. Yep, covers are out. For a moment it seemed it was just a passing light drizzle, but the heavens have opened and we’re looking at another delay here.
