Faf better than AB, but no third option

Aug 7, 2013: While Faf du Plessis' captaincy was more confident than AB de Villiers' in Sri Lanka, South Africa have not invested in grooming a leader during a decade of Graeme Smith and are left with little choice beyond the two

New routine brings Dilshan relief

Jul 28, 2013: There is unbridled joy in each of Tillakaratne Dilshan's hundred celebrations, but this one was tinged with some relief too. He is arriving at a period in his career where he must prove even to himself that his skill remains undimmed
