    Changes for the sides? Think SA should bring in Tsolekeli and Peterson for Duminey and Rory.

    Australia? Will tell you in 3 days.

    Tahir will play.

    Peterson just brings so much more as a package than Tahir. I really, really want them to go with the keeper, which will weaken the batting. Therefore it would be better to get a bowler in who could bat and also keep it tight with the ball. Tahir can't do either!

    R Peterson's bowling is obnoxious though. Tahir's lollipops might atleast tempt some batsmen to hit out and find fielders in the process.

    I personally think SA should go back to Paul Harris, but he isn't here.

    Tahir is just so rubbish, and consider the records of Swann and Ajmal in the country....

    Starc in for Hilfenhaus.

    Watson in for Quiney if he's fit.

    Khawaja/Hughes in for Ponting.

    Those are the changes I'd make.

    Dammit CSB, Ponting is king. Go fist yourself

    My changes for both sides:
    Watson for Quiney
    Khawaja/Hughes for Warner (he needs to know if he doesn't perform he doesn't have a spot)
    If Watson's playing leave Lyon in, if not bring in Hauritz, O'keefe or McDonald
    Starc or Cutting for Hilfenhaus, probably Cutting because he deserves it much much more

    South Africa's changes will most likely be pretty simple. Tahir for Rory and Tsolekeli for Duminy

    I think Tahir is a good luck charm for SA. :ponting4:
