South Africa are of course in the Caribbean for the much talked about series with the West Indies, but I wonder how they must be feeling. They get beaten, at home, by England – by all accounts a humilating defeat. They must be hurting from that still, and must feel either slightly irritated or pleased that the West Indies can’t/won’t select their best XI.
So it can’t have pleased them too much that Wavell Hinds hit a double hundred, and the West Indian standin captain is approaching his, too! Nel apart, their attack looks flimsy to say the least. Where’s Dale Steyn?
