Can any SA fan tell me , how can they drop their best T20 bat + top run scorer in T20s Graeme Smith for his ODI failures? Don't see his left arm seam weakness being a major factor here, it never was in T20s.
Not the conditions Levi would enjoy either.
I hate to say but this will lead to their failure in the tourney. Opposition will look to get the top 3-4 out quickly like 2011 WC.
Zimbo have beaten S.A in a recent tri-series in T20 format so they should fancy there chances of an upset here.
This Sibanda guy is CRAAAP

Why zimbos keep playing him? oh wait they dont have any replacements in the top order
A superb start for the proteas...zimbabwe just playing and missing everything
South africa on paper look the strongest out of all the nations - but of course theres the chokers tag
Zimbos are the worst team in this competition no doubt. Whats their strength? Batting bowling fielding?

And Taylor their best batsman is in horrible form esp. by seeing his performances in SLPL

They need miracle to win from now
next time bangladesh and zimbabwe also should take party in qualifying round i feel for Netherlands/Scotland :(
This is too painful to watch. Almost like SA are playing our Gulli ki side
Even though the ground is pretty much empty damn its loud lol...atmosphere is electric
Whose bright idea was to play a WC in Sri Lanka right after they had hosted the ODI WC..

Lankan games are pretty dull. Even if India or Bangladesh had hosted it, atmosphere would have been better. Even UAE could have been used

The signs are there. Saffers will destroy every team in group and super eights. They will also choke in the semis vs a far less talented team

This looks like the band we have during marriages

This approach from zim batsmen would have been criticized even in tests :facepalm:
