    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!!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I love all cartoons about Pakistan Cricket :D

    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.

  • InnocentGuy on January 18, 2013, 16:05 GMT

    @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.

  • AbdulMoizKhan on January 18, 2013, 15:58 GMT

    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

  • LourensGrobbelaar on January 18, 2013, 15:50 GMT

    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

  • CorneredTiger92-09 on January 18, 2013, 12:18 GMT

    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

    Predict another whitewash!

  • DoosraMaar on January 18, 2013, 9:37 GMT

    That's what everyone predicted when England reached UAE. From that point they are still recovering.

    You NEVER underestimate the power of "Tuk Tuk" of Misbah.

    If SA has the Pride then it has to FALL.

  • Zavierz on January 18, 2013, 9:35 GMT

    Hahaha Smith lookin so Cute...........

  • Anwar-Lara on January 18, 2013, 9:31 GMT

    Apart from Australia only Pakistan at this moment is very well equipped to face the mighty South africans..

  • nandhi on January 18, 2013, 9:12 GMT

    Yes,Pakistan are a high potential contest for Sa if the pakistani batsmen are efeective and consistent...Paki Bowlers will surely rock!

  • Captain_Tuk_Tuk on January 18, 2013, 8:38 GMT

    We are a better test team SA is best but we are still better then many teams, number 4 on ICC ranking only because we played less test otherwise we can easily become number 1 if we play as much tests as SA, Aus, Eng and India does.

  • wakaPAK on January 18, 2013, 8:18 GMT

    So?? I dont understand how th two dialogues connect? SA finish a test in 2-3 days, does it solve the problem of lack of tests for Pakistan? Or is Smith trying to say "Dont worry, we finish a test in 2-3 days and you'll not be talking about the lack of tests anymore" Please Achariya!

  • umairasgharbutt on January 18, 2013, 8:08 GMT

    haha nice one satish !!! btw pak gonna give sa tough time for sure !

  • ramli on January 18, 2013, 8:06 GMT

    I don't think Pak will go down without a fight ... both teams are equipped with bowling ammunition

  • ManishArvind on January 18, 2013, 4:44 GMT

    appropriate and nice cartoon for Pak and South Africa team :)

  • No featured comments at the moment.
