Cricket: SA vs SL ODI’s

Today sees the first of 5 odi’s scheduled to be played between SA and the visiting team Sri Lanka. It’s also the first game AB De Viliers is playing since he was appointed captain of the SA one day team. I am definitely looking forward to something new with Gary Kirsten’s 2nd stint of odi’s and now with the captain that he wants to build with.

There was a breeze of excitement when it was announced that Dean Elgar had been picked for the team and the feeling that a good change is coming; unfortunately he injured himself and had to withdraw from the squad and Albie Morkel has been given a life-line after a few good scores resently. Rory Kleinveld is still making his return to international cricket after previously playing two T20 games for SA.

The ODI squad looks like this(only for the first two games): AB de Villiers (Nashua Titans, capt), Hashim Amla (Sunfoil Dolphins, vice-captain), Johan Botha (Chevrolet Warriors), JP Duminy (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Faf du Plessis (Nashua Titans), Albie Molkel(Nashua Titans), Jacques Kallis (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Rory Kleinveldt (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Morne Morkel (Nashua Titans), Wayne Parnell (Chevrolet Warriors), Robin Peterson (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Graeme Smith (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Dale Steyn (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Lonwabo Tsotsobe (Chevrolet Warriors).

The Sri Lanka squad: Tillakaratne Dilshan (captain), Angelo Mathews, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Kosala Kulasekera, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekera, Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath, Dhammika Prasad, Dilhara Fernando, Lahiru Thirimanne.

The Sri Lankans are the runners-up from the previous WC, but have since lost 3 odi series in a row. SA has the better over SL when it comes to odi’s in SA winning 12 and losing 5, with the last match played was one of the losses.

This game in Paarl starts at 14:30 and as always it’s weather permitting…………

  • i think today is going to be tight with the Paarl pitch benefiting the lankans a bit . Would be intresting to see if we play both Botha and Robin peterson ..

    That would make me ask the question why Tahir is not in the ODI squad then …

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 4) :

    oops .. yes taking on SL with only 10 players would just be arrogant . include Steyn please ;)

    Philander , i assume , is the other one ?

  • @Zibbie (Comment 5) :

    Nah, I wasn’t referring to your post at all.

    I’m talking about the squad, how can both Philander and de Lange not be there?

    Steyn is a great bowler, but is better in tests..

    And as for your team, I think they might play both Morkels at the expense of Faf or Peterson.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 6) :

    Yea i think excluding Philander is a big mistake . De Lange . i dont know .. not sure about him in ODI’s yet

    @Richard Ferguson (Comment 7) :

    I think Paarl will be a bit of a turning track . and Peterson and Botha helps the batting (a bit)

  • @Zibbie (Comment 8) :

    I don’t know the Paarl track at all, so I will take your word for it. If it is indeed a turning track, I agree with playing both, but again, our best attacking spinner isn’t there. But I trust Kirsten’s judgment in this matter.

    de Lange is a special talent, and even if he is just sitting on the sidelines, he has to be there or there abouts. Lopsy has had his chances, and I don’t really rate him. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 9) :

    Yea with both Person and Botha averaging about 40 in the bowling department for ODI’s is not very encouraging . sad not to see Tahir there . I think we should use him .

    Lopsy averages about 20 with the ball in ODI’s . I think he should be one of our bowlers that play . Morne on the other hand i think is in a bit of trouble . But we will see

  • @Zibbie (Comment 10) :

    I have no idea of the current ODI form of any of these players, so my comments are based purely on what I’ve seen in the past (I don’t really follow the domestic cricket scene)

    We will have to see if Kirsten can get the split between ODI’s and Tests right, as he did with India..

    Lobsy is coming back from injury now .
    The ODI team is lacking something . what i dont know . we need a bit of a spark . Maybe bring in Levi to open the bating . we are missing a guy like Gibbs or a Klusener .

  • @Franshark (Comment 15) :

    Whould have been interesting seeing Philander play . You said the squad is only for the first 2 ODI’s ? maybe he’ll come in for the last 3 ..

    But you have to keep in mind that Paarl is a dust track like the subcontinent . so not much swing ect . Would like to see big Vern on a tour to India or the likes . See how he performs

  • @Zibbie (Comment 1) : Tahir is taking over Paul Harris role of being the primary test spinner and botha and peterson the one day spinners, what the reason behind this is I honestly don’t know.

    But if I have to guess it will have something to do with the fact that he doesn’t always have 100% control over the ball and is likely to bowl a wayward ball with witch you will get away in test but in ODI’s you are going to get punished.
