AB_de_Villiers_glove_(cropped)Talk about an abundance of riches. The South African batting line is ‘crazy’ in not a GREAT way. Quinton de Kock, Amla, du Plessis, AB, Duminy (who has blossomed in the last 12 months), Behardien and Miller! What a nice problem to have.

Abraham Benjamin “AB” de Villiers at #4 is a waste — and he knows that. Yes, of course, I know that he is wicket-keeping as well, BUT I think he is plenty fit. He should open with de Kock — who I think is THE most EXCITING young cricketer on the scene at the moment! I have seen a lot of him and there is a lot to like. Very pleasing on the eye.

AB coming in at #4 does NOT give him enough overs. That is the issue. AB #3 and du Plessis #4.

So much for my belief that South Africa will go the extra mile to win this for Mandela!

Wow. Crushed like a dung beetle under the hooves of a water buffalo!

Amla only faced 3 balls and he is the #1 ODI batsman in the known universe?

AB feasting on duck?

Duminy 3?

OK. I have to ask. Are the South African back to the good ol’ days of FIXING MATCHES? This doesn’t look kosher to me.

I am suspicious. South Africa all out in 38.4 overs? Come on? Give me a break, even an off-break.

South Africa Will Go The Extra Mile To Win ICC Champions Trophy 2013 For Nelson Mandela.

South Africa, these days, with the likes of Amla, AB, Duminy and Morkel (with that cutest of run-ups), is a formidable team even in the worst of times.

This morning I was trying to work out whether this would be a repeat of the last World Cup: Sri Lanka vs. India.

Then it hit me. The South Africans MAY BE trying to win this for Nelson.

Cricket is not his #1 sport. He, though a champion heavyweight boxer in his younger days, is definitely a Rugby man. That is OK. I can understand that. Cricket would have been hard to follow let alone savor from Robben Island. But, as we have seen, he just revels in any and all South African victories — as he should.

So, I get a feeling that this team will go the extra mile for Nelson in the coming week — and I am ‘A-OK’ with that.

Anything we can do to celebrate and glorify THE MAN.

I know the day is coming. I am dreading it. Not sure how I will handle it.

So what I do envisage is a Sri Lanka vs. South Africa final.
