What has any of this got to do with pigeons?
Part of the general malaise. Where exactly is the New SA succeeding.
Van der Dussen.
Semi Final guaranteed.
Can't say I'm buying.
Each to their own Denny. But what part of steadier openers, a more explosive middle order and bowling experience doesn't appeal?
Amla batting at less than 4 runs an over is the ideal opener - strike rate is of no importance and the fact is he was piss poor in most matches he played in. That is what one calls idiot thinking. Symcox said Amla was poor in ODIs now for two years - but Mozart will not accept facts and carries on with his BS.
And AB I out of contention - but Mozart keeps on with him. Is he totally distorted in that top storey?
The general idea is to get better - not worse. Amla is finished on international level - we need to look at other players and a number of those were mentioned elsewhere on site.
When will this reputation nonsense stop and players selected on merit?
Who said anything about the future 'semi final guaranteed', clearly is a commentary on the team we should have chosen.
Sure - we chose Amla who failed badly in 5 o f the seven matches he played in and whose strike rate was totally ineffective in two cases where he did make runs at an unacceptable strike rate, The Aussies would also have beaten us if Amla did play. .
But as I proved de Ock had more negative games than Amla, even excluding his WC exiting non call on Williamson.
On what basis BSter? You claim he did and lied about performance and you are even too ignorant to look at strike rate where De Koock was way over 80 - while Amla was under 65/ That prove you are BSting again.
Every newspaper - every expert - said De Kock was not up to his normal standard and everyone say Amla was deficient - but you said the contrary, so must we become foolish like you?
Higher strike rate.....lower average....more failures in big games by de Ock.
So England, New Zealand and all other matches lost by the Proteas were not key matches? The average is worked out that way because Amla was fiddling around in low scoring matches and not out in 2 was technically increase his average because they are not counted in official matches. Fact is with 7 matches actually played his average was 29. That is realized by everybody but you as exceptionally poor at a strike rate of 64,5 it is a disaster.
Dream on - you are never realistic anyway.
