@Robin Benger, yup completely agree, however this modest player doesn't regard himself as third best as his statement was "I'm not even the second best" so we don't know if he even regards himself as the third or not, he maybe regards himself lower than that but he certainly is the best player in SA and is consistency shows that.

When the pitch is bowler friendly, then SA have extremely done well. Dont know what will happen to Pakistan today. Steyn, Philander and others will destroy Pakistan batting line up. This match will be over by tomorrow as SA wins by an innings.

What an articulate, generous and thoughtful young man. Rare to see such quality and grace with the bat, combined with such modesty and simplicity in person. Remember, he regards himself as only the third best batsman in the SA squad. Special player, special human being
