Isn't it time that the senior cricket players realize that they cannot just dictate (even subtly or otherwise!!!) which form of the game you/they wish to play and very comfortably sit back and allow the short game to sink deeper into the mud. If you play five day cricket and you've made a success (and earn huge bucks$$$$$$) you should also play T20 and the 50 over games. You owe this to the SA followers!
The resultant effect of this unfortunate situation is exactly what happened at Centurion - excellent franchise players not making the grade at International level. South Africa has the players, both on the batting and bowling sides to have been able to win the Pakistanis. Quite frankly messrs Hudson and Kirsten together with Smith, Hamla, Kallis and others etc are squarly to blame.  
Come on guys, this just isn't cricket!!!!
