    PS - this "non batting tail end partner" bats higher up the order than Miller.
    Actually I like Miller, just don't think much of his skill as a cricketer. So in 10 balls that he faced he punished ONE bad ball. Not good enough.

    Do you really understand cricket?
    One cannot criticise a 200 strike rate - period!

    Unless there was only one bad ball, then he punished all of them. The Gans actually bowled pretty well, hence the low score in the match. I'll still say that 20 off 10 is better than 10 off two and out.

    Someone taking on Miller for having a 200 strike rate.

    Wonder how they feel about Bavuma?

    Back to the Pommie commentry remarks. I must admit, I am also not a big fan of his commentry, but after listening to commentry from the “Phalaborwa Express” yesterday, I would choose Pommie.

    I am with Tedx2, will not mind if the kiwis win the T20 world cup.

    Personally I wouldn’t mind if the Ozzies won either.

    Sounds like I'm in the minority here, but I like Pommie's commentary. For me (and my young sons) , he makes the game more exciting than it actually is.

    As a team, I enjoy a commentary combination of one that brings passion, and one that brings technical expertise. Like when Pommie and Shaun Pollock work together.
    Sort of like when Crofty and Brundle commentate together in F1.

    Caught the highlights last night, that pitch was dog slow. I think we would have defended 145 against a lot of teams.

    In the Nam vs Sri Lanka game the pitch was horrendously slow and Sri Lanka adapted better to the conditions.

    If this is an indication of what to come, expect teams with out-and-out pace to do well as well as unorthodox spinners bowling wicket to wicket (pace and flight seems more important on these pitches than spin).

    Sri Lanka quickly realised this and advanced more often than not to compensate for the lack of true bounce and it worked beautifully.

    I wonder how many cricket fans around the world know that we are sort playing with a hand half tied behind our backs.

    Quota systems are forcing the selection of players that perhaps might not be there on merit. (Not looking to debate the topic, it is what it is)

    Over and above this, we've lost so many good players to other countries. It would be interesting to see how many Saffas or children born to Saffas are actively playing in this world cup. The fact that so many are coaches for the various teams is quite telling too.

    And it's not just cricket, there are many of these examples.
    In fact, the highest paid athlete in the world last year, was born to a South African. (Rodger)

    Cameron Norrie, who just won the Indian Wells ATP 1000 (tennis) was born in SA. Im sure there's many more examples.

    We actually do quite well despite this talent drain, and forced selection....

    But the question im asking is, are people out there actually aware of this?

    Talking about players in other teams. I see Roelof van der Merwe is there, playing for the cheese heads.

    But Saffers doing well in other cricket teams isn't a new phenomenon.

    Kevin Peterson actually captained the England team, and so did Alan Lamb before him.
