      I thought uncle Graeme Smith wasnt playing T20 anymore.

      Ettiene - 2012-07-19 13:32

      Agree Ingram should not be there

      Relax, Smith will probably not make the final cut.

      Dhirshan please stop trying to pull the race card. Apartheid was over a long time ago

      Kallis doesn't even hit rucks

      Dhirs. What does being Indian got to do with your comment???...Amla doesnt need to justify his inclusion to you. What Amla must not be is the captain....unfortunately it affects his game. Other than that he is a top performer in all 3 formats.

  • papastorm.joulekeding - 2012-07-19 13:50

    What about Jon Jon and Kelly Smuts? They're the future of SA cricket.

  • gunner.zn.5 - 2012-07-20 08:20

    Good to see that both Miller and Van der merwe are selected....both can be very effective in Sri Lankan conditions
