Couldn’t really resist the pun!

On a serious note, Prince has finally found a path through which he can keep a place in the team.

He did score a double-ton in a trial run in domestic cricket.

Good for him.

However, I do fear for Imraan Khan.

He might not get to play another test because of Prince’s re-emergence as an opener.

He would perhaps have to re-invent himself as a middle order batsman.

Let’s see….

Regular readers of my blog would’ve noticed that I tended to have a hardline stance against Australia. All that was for a reason.

Now, I can do nothing but sit back and admire the Aussies!

I mean, this is the same team that we thought was disintegrating, and would have an extensive rebuilding period.

But, the rebuilding seems to be over!

Siddle sizzled, Johnson rocked, and McD and Hilfy supported the two extremely well.

Kato comes in with his lollipops and snares the lower order completely.

Truly amazing, I have to say. Kudos to Punter for a good job done. Looks like he’s enjoying having some youngsters out with him rather than a dad’s army, which he had for most of his captaincy career.

Let’s not forget Hughes, who first became the youngest Aussie test centurion in 43 years and then the youngest man to make twin hundreds in a match. The lad looks good, and he might be a long – term fixture. Perhaps it would be a good idea to slot him in the limited overs side with Haddin.

Meanwhile, the Saffers have rung in some changes with McKenzie and Morkel being given the boot. This could possibly be the end of McKenzie’s career @ 33, but not so for Morne, who’s just about 23. I feel it’s a bit too harsh on him considering that he had just 2 bad test. Anyhowz, that’s life.

In his place, the explosive centurion in the tour game, Imraan Khan, comes in, while Prince makes a return as captain in place of Smith. Wayne Parnell has also been brought in, so it will be a tussle between Albie Morkel and Parnell for Morne’s spot.

Quite funny for Prince, isn’t it? Couldn’t get a spot in the side, and now he’s the skipper!

Imraan Khan….

….is kicking some Aussie butt!

Man, this dude, along with Vaughn Van Jaarsveld, is really taking the green Australian attack to the cleaners!

They’re rollicking at nearly 5.2 runs per over, with Imraan reaching his century off just 106 balls and Van Jaarsveld on 37 from 49.

Looks like the instructions from Mickey Arthur have been clear….Boys, tear those bloody Aussies apart and make sure that they send in a replacement set to play the first test…I don’t wanna see any of them with an ounce of confidence when they come for the first test…do that for me and I’ll consider you for one of the test…
