    Just logged in to say how I took the cartoon. To me it was SA saying that they also don't have much practice as they finish the tests in 2-3 days!!!

    What i am wondering is, when Pakistan plays, Mr. Dhoni is man of the match and there will be no Dhoni in SA vs PAK. But Does it Matter? even if he watches the match on TV, he can be given a man of the match. Only make sure Man of the match is given by ICC (Indian Cricket Board) lol

    cartoon doesn't go with the current dominance of Pakistan....satish needs to stop being racist for a change

    Pakistan have a very good bowling attack at the moment. They might be lacking in the batting department, but if their bowlers turn it on, this series is going to be very closely contested.

    @wakaPAK, it could mean 2 things, both of which are funny here! One, Smith is trying to say that they don't have enough 'practice' either with them finishing off Test matches under 3 days. Or it could mean that given that SA finish off their matches under 3 days, Pak don't need that much practice to begin with since they will be playing very little Test cricket against SA.

    our team depends on spinners(ajmal, rehman, hafeez). SA can play Seamers as they have their own huge varities lke steyn morkel philander . hope the pitch is well for spinners

    This South African thinks this will be a real test for SA's aspirations to stay the no 1 team and dominate. Pakistan always bring good bowlers and players up for a fight. I hope for some good cricket, but a win for SA

    I think this series is going to be a great battle between SA batsmen and Pakistan bowlers. For Pakistan to do well in this series, the batting has to click and Pakistan have a history of batting failures in SA/Aus which is why I'm not confident. Hafeez and Younus will do well but I'm not sure about the rest. Inshallah Pakistan win the series though
