The wounds are still raw following the Proteas semi-final defeat in the World Cup last month. Now we have proof that the team which took the field came about from political meddling.
During the painful hours and days that were the dissection of the Proteas’ semi-final defeat some fans raised suspicion at the selection of Vern Philander. Fears confirmed here.
Day in and day out we see the same clichéd question and answer sessions across all sporting codes. How refreshing then to see the Ozzie captain get one out of left field.
I cant quite put my finger on why I enjoy seeing England fail at sports but I am not alone in enjoying their demise, of that I’m sure. This writer’s attack on their cricket team will make you chuckle.

Ex-England cricketer Michael Vaughan has an overwhelming feeling of sadness for the entire Kevin Pietersen sacking and management of the situation.
I think it’s safe to say that Kevin Pietersen is not South Africa’s favourite sportsman. Will you be reading his all-telling book?

I swipe on over to Cricinfo to confirm the news that, indeed, Biff has retired. Then I look up, and there’s Graeme Smith. The man himself, also having breakfast. He’s deep in conversation with his wife, and he’s clutching at the Protea emblem on his track top.
After the first round of the IPL auction quite a few of the SA players available are still up for grabs at this year’s auction.

The Delhi Daredevils bought him for $2.08 million.
