    SA just need one man's presence to lift their batting - Graeme Smith (even as a batting coach).

    What this series & the SA in India series both prove is that Steyn is an absolute legend. He is The Key South African player, above all others.

    Pity Hardus Viljoen was sent back to the Highveld Lions. I think he is better than either Morris or Marchant De Lange. And perhaps Shamsi in the spinning berth - something completely different?
