Cricket: Last 3 games of SL tour.

So here we are, at the end of the Sri Lanka tour to SA. As we expected so far the tour was dominated by SA. Sri Lanka still have something to take back and that’s their first test win on South African soil. From an SA point of view, the Durban test has to be an extreme disappointment as it is the only blemish in what would have been a clean slate.

The first ODI was a shocker for Sri Lanka as they are the runners-up for last year’s WC and big expectation was on the one day team. The 2nd game was much closer but still SA was in control throughout.

We now get to the last 3 games played within 6 days and the changes to the SA team could make for interesting competition. The number one ODI batsman in the world, Hashim Amla and his wife are expecting their newborn any day now and has been relieved of his duties to the squad. At the same time, rest has been given to Kallis and that means that at least 2 changes to the starting 11 will happen. The other change in the squad come through Rory Kleinveld that injured himself and Philander getting a deserving call into the squad for the last few games. A Petersen and C Ingram replace Amla and Kallis.

I think that they will be the only changes to the winning team, and if they pull off a win that will secure the series then a few more changes will happen in the last 2 games.

Here is the squad as it looks now:
AB de Villiers (Nashua Titans, capt), Johan Botha (Chevrolet Warriors), JP Duminy (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Faf du Plessis (Nashua Titans), Colin Ingram (Chevrolet Warriors), Albie Morkel (Nashua Titans), Morne Morkel (Nashua Titans), Wayne Parnell (Chevrolet Warriors), Alviro Petersen (bizhub Highveld Lions), Robin Peterson (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Vernon Philander (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Graeme Smith (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Dale Steyn (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Lonwabo Tsotsobe (Chevrolet Warriors).

Enjoy these last few games, in more or less a months time SA start the first of 3 tours, touring to New Zealand first. And these games are not SA friendly watching times. Starting either, at 8 in the morning or at 12 midnight. And by then we will be very close to the start of SR which will take preference around here ;)

  • They should’ve changed one or two more for the game… Some guys are really out of form (and shape). But still keep on getting chances.

  • I am unsure as to what role Faf plays in the team, unless he is the specialist fielder?!

    Looking forward to seeing Alviro at the top of the order.

    Also hoping Ingram gets a shot at 3.

    Alviro Peterson and Colin Ingram in for Kallis and Amla, as suspected.

  • Steyn deserves a rest, hope Philander gets a run! Parnell should come in for Morkel.

    Hoping that either Ingram or Alviro score big to dislodge Smith.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 47) :

    i think i would rather have gone for Philander in place of Steyn .

    @Franshark (Comment 49) :

    The problem is we have 2 batsmen that can constantly buckle down and score good runs . the once has a beard and a baby and the other one is 72 but still playing

    the others get out at stupid times to stupid shots .

    They take silly runs at silly times .. and its very frustrating …

    I’m quite sure we agree then, that Philander comes in for Steyn, and Parnell replacing either Morkel or Lopsy.. I would give Morkel a break as well, he will be needed in the tests again, and I feel Lopsy is a better ODI player than test bowler, and Philander will return for the tests in NZ..

    If he continues, he will prove a lot of detractors wrong..

    Bold from SA, but AB and Smith can kill the game right now..

    Its a shame the Proteas couldn’t kick on to a bigger score, they seemed to lose the plot in the last 25 overs?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 130) : still good exposure for youngsters..
    Maybe one change for sundays game, J Botha haven’t had a game yet… If they wanna give Philander another go then they can replace Peterson just to give Botha a game….

  • @Franshark (Comment 131) :

    I agree about the exposure for both Parnell and Philander, as well as Peterson and Ingram. What worries me though is that these are not youngsters, they are more backup players.
