• Trio celebrate birthdays

    Three Proteas, current and past, celebrate their birthdays on Tuesday. Happy birthday Pat Symcox (55), Loots Bosman (38) and JP Duminy (31).

    Symcox played 20 Tests for South Africa, the charismatic off-spinner claiming 37 wickets. He also played 80 ODIs, taking 72 wickets. Watch below as he is ‘bowled’ … although he wasn’t …

    The big-hitting Bosman featured in 14 ODIs, scoring 301 runs with an average of 25.08 and in 13 T20Is, making 323 runs at a strike rate of 147.48. Watch as he takes the fight to Australia in 2005.

    Last, but not least, watch Duminy take a great catch here …
