You can call them chokers, you can call them arrogant heck you can even go as far as calling them inconsistent but don’t ever knock the Proteas when they are down because you’re likely to get a rude awakening.
The first test match between South Africa and Australia was drawn and it’s been widely and publicly, through the media been reported that Australia dominated the test match. be that as it will, the fact remains that it was still a draw and the score still reads 0-0.
Whats interesting for me is the fact that Australia have been chirping away since the end of the match, with Michael Clarke saying he expects the same from his team through out the series and that if they can get our captain Graeme Smith out cheaply all the time that the Proteas will fail. David Warner has also come out and said our batsmen are distracted and cannot bat for long periods of time and that our minds are not focused, says the guy that has only played 10 tests and averages below 40.
Well let me make a sound warning to the Aussies. you are dealing with one of the steeliest and mentally powerful players in the form of Graeme Smith and to think that your so called “captain Killer” scenario will happen in this series is foolish to say the least. lets remember Smith himself has downed three English captains already, knock him when he’s down and he’ll come out and treat your bowlers as if they are a disease he has come to cure, as he has done so many times in the past. don’t mess with our captain. he’ll stuff you up
Trying to sledge Amla and get under his skin??? the most focused cricketer on the planet? bad mistake, he’ll make a pitch with boulders on it look as flat as a concrete slab.Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Philander not the best in the world? let us not remind you of the 47 you were bowled out for just a couple of seasons ago.
Bring your mind games, you are dealing with the number 1 ranked team in the world and we sure as hell didn’t get there by falling for mediocre tactics such as the ones you have presented.
This Australia, is the awkward truth.
South Africa will bounce back in the second test, and all the Big mouthed Australians will be hushed
