As an Englishman, i of course support my country. But when i'm not supporting England i am an avid South Africa fan.
It has not escaped my attention therefore that this great team could soon be in a spot of bother. With the retirement of Allan Donald to start with, he's been a great paceman for SA over the years and he has rather gone a little too far, i think it was a wise decision for him to step down.
But in the very near future i see more of their better players bowing out og International cricket. The likes of Jonty Rhodes, who is quite possibly the best filder of all time, he ads a lot of stability to their fielding and he is complimented very well by Herschelle Gibbs. But when Jonty decides to step down there are going to be some very big shoes to fill in the fielding role, as well as his handyness with the bat.
Another player who is not going to be around for much longer sadly is Lance Klusener! One of their better all rounders, he has been a great idle of mine. Again, he ads stability to the team and on many, many occasions he has dug the team out of some terrible situations with his explosive and very strike rate friendly batting.
These players are very experienced and are quite often the back bone of this South African team. My main concern is that when these all time greats bow out of the game that they have left such big shoes to fill that it will be very hard to actually fill them. And if you can't replace these key players with people who are going to do the job as well then the team is going to suffer. There have been a few young guys emerging like Zondeki. But the questions is can these new guys do the job?
Also reading an earlier opinion, i really do think SA lack a goodspinner.
Thanks for listening!
