I miss Colin Koekemoer with his vast knowledge of cricket. I wonder what he feels like now...

With all due respect how the hell do you come to that conclusion?

With the ball coz, we have the best bowling attack in the world, without injuries we are going back to number one

Conclusion was purely based on paper, but we all know cricket isn't played on paper. However, NZ's batting line up was not very strong. And their opening four looked completely out of sorts against Steyn and Philander. Seemed at times they were praying for the overs they were facing to just pass.

Okay, I said cricket is not played on paper. But maybe Graeme knew something we didn't.

Greame how do you come across your answer? Proteas only bowled 13 overs with a strong batting lineup from the Kiwis, quality players still to bat. Kiwis are used to wet conditions, overcast.... So please!

No offence, but what strong batting line up did you see? Guptil and Williamson were they only quality batsmen. Taylor used to b quality, but he has been poor for several years now. The rest of their batsmen have poor test averages. I agree we shouldn't worry about ifs and buts, but you are giving NZ too much credit.

That strong batting order was falling apart by Dale Steyn, just imagine Rabada also in the attack, no way NZ would have won

How do you figure? Latest aus scored 350+. SL 180. (1st Innings) SL still won the match.

Too different pitch conditions, four completely different teams in terms of bowling, batting and fielding. You can't compare the two matches. But I have to agree, nobody could have been able to predict the result. Even though the Proteas trump NZ on paper in the batting and bowling department.

Gee wizz.....what a stupid statement considering how poor we have been lately.....

Did our batsmen look good? One guy got a 50....the rest? Please man! Only a moron can say we would have won from there...

Don't think it's a stupid statement at all. NZ batsmen looked completely out of place. All four of NZ's opening batsmen looked like they were praying for each of the overs they were facing to finish. Once we got rid of them we would have been into the all rounders. NZ does not have a good test batting line up. Great T20 and ODI batting line up, but poor test batting side. They have a great test bowling side though.

Hello? Did NZ's batsmen look good? Clearly you didn't watch the match. You saw the score card and made your conclusion. The pitch was difficult to play on. Yes most of our batsmen gave away their wickets, but New Zealand were even worse off.

Oh please Benjamin Ericksen...how many times was South Africa 50/3 and still posted 350+.....New Zealand didn't bat long enough to tell anything....I want SA to win but I'm still realistic. There's no way in hell anyone with half a brain cell can say SA would have won after taking 2 out of the 20 wickets needed to win....read some other posts and see how many half witts agree with you...

Colin Koekemoer, first of all name calling isn't necessary, that just proves your inadequacy to reason. Secondly you clearly don't know cricket, so let's leave it that.
