Thus ends the famed “African Safari” for the men in blue. And its been largely good. A fighting comeback to level the test matches after the blood bath at Supersport Park,notching up 2 wins in the One dayers (even though we eventually lost the series!) and clinching the only T20I was in all respects,a better bargain that what was expected of them.
More importantly, cricket was the winner with some edge-of-the-seat thrillers, a slam bang Yusuf Pathan and some much improved Indian bowling. Morkel was the pick of the bowlers undoubtedly,though Munaf and Zaheer played exceedingly well.Amla lived up to his credentials and so did Kallis for the home side.The real surprise package for the visitors being Virat Kohli and Yusuf Pathan, both of whom look certain for a place in the eleven for the World Cup.
Yuvraj Singh can look forward to running his dad’s petrol bunk, since he was nothing short of a disaster and so was Murali Vijay, the IPL Superman.Maybe they could team up with Micheal Clarke and Paul Collingwood,whose heads are bound to roll soon enough.
