He's settled in with a wonderful series victory. Wise words from Pollock though. Remember when we beat the Aussies in 2013 only for them to stuff us 2-1 on the SA leg. .Smith admitted that they were drained after the Aussie leg . Faf looks hungry though.

He doesn't need time to settle in Greame Pollock, thsi blowk is been around since feather weight, He has a good collective of players and a Very Brilliant coach.

faf has already proven himself as far as the captaincy role is concerned, he jus built up a solid platform which jus needs to be maintained positively, well done dude all the best in future

Greame Pollock they easily say him time but when it come the springbok hope they also give him time and has the same tolerance and acceptance as for who everybody goes on for faf

He needs to get over himself and stick to the rules of the game, however unpalatable. He's currently acting like he's bigger than the game - is this the role model you want as captain?

Michael i dont care if he is guilty or not ... it is in the past get over it .

Faf is challenging this rule as most players getaway with this especially Aus,Eng and India. The home broadcaster kept the footage of Kohli doing exactly the same until such time that he can't be charged. Why on earth shud we now respect such rules? Smith said they shine the ball the same way as Faf did he get caught? Hell no!

It would be great if all international cricket players decided to pay towards Faf's penalty- that would send a very strong message!!

Since when is it a sin to have a little bit of confidence ??? You all are complaining about bs ... go complain on the rugby page ... if faf was black he wouldve been a hero ...

Rean Swart agree ICC and IRB are a bunch of puppets!

Rean Swart there is no such thing as double standard. He was caught, he pays the time! Kholi was not " caught" until after the prescribed period. Laws are laws no matter how one sided they seem to be. Everybody seems to accept playing under them until caught - then they cry foul.

Brandon Slater don't introduce race into a simple transgression of the rule. Faf thought he could get away with it but the TV camera caught him out! Accept it, if you do the crime do the time!

Great comment Michael. Faf has a history so guys that argue against his illegal intentions are delusional. I find Faf to be a grandstander, the oke thrives on praise. He's good but needs to be humble and be a captain that we can respect and trust.

Colleen Kitching, there's something in blind patriotism that sustains the wrongs of the past... I don't think you'll get it.
