Difficult to say who will be the best on the day. Such a pity we have to choose. Love all our guys. Thank you all for wonderful cricket!

Common sense says Abbott is the man and the pitch will also suit him.but this movie has happened many times before where u go into a test without a very experienced bowler n u chase leather....I would play morne morkel for the mere fact that he will offer different questions to David Warner. Abbott is the same as Vernon philander therefore let's guard against that.But if Abbott gets chosen I will not really cry n I know he will do a good job.

Abbott has to play. Morkel coming off a long term injury has yet to play a lot of cricket. He gets injured and we have the same situation as last test. Also think Pretorius in for Maharaj

I think they said next year he will be eligible to play for SA. I don't see that happening though

Day 1 and 2 is going to rain out, with only morning rain during day 3. Day 4 and 5 will have no rain...

We where just discussing this topic this morning..i said Abbott aswell..My reason been that Morkel is fast his tall he gets bounce..all the attributes a Express paceman should have but he lacks bigtime in the aggression Department..and thats Crucial for a Fast bowler..Abbott even has more aggression than him and yet his a medium pacer..

can the former England batsman keep he's England and let us keep our Mzantsi Afrika. Our selectors know what they're doing

I couldn't agree with you more, he must focus on his domestic cricket. But I also think Abbot at the moment can do a better job than Morkel.

Its's not an easy 1 to call for me bt I would prefer Morkel's experience to compensate the experience we lost from Steyn's injury. I do believe our selector's will make the right choice based on the game plan they have for that match and conditions that they will be facing on matchday.
