Post your comment about 2010 South Africa cricket tour of West Indies
The team has taken a lot of flak back home and rightly so. We have got to take responsibility for that. The team has really worked hard in the last few days we have had here in Antigua, and it is up to the team to perform well here and regain face with the public back home. We have got a few new players who have arrived here and they will provide fresh impetus and momentum. Confidence is an important thing and we need to start the West Indies tour strongly.
— Graeme Smith saying South African cricket team has a point to prove after their poor performance in the T20 World Cup / May 19, 2010
When a guy [like Boucher] has played over 300 ODIs you are always going to miss that experience. He has been a talisman of the side for a long period of time now. He has been part of a core group of senior players who have performed regularly. The selectors have taken the decision now to look ahead at some new options, and certainly having AB keep allows you one or two extra options in the line-up. Andrew Hudson has arrived here today and we will sit down together and select the team for the game.
— Graeme Smith saying AB de Villiers will replace Mark Boucher as keeper for the limited over matches in the tour of West Indies / May 19, 2010
AB will be starting with the gloves in the limited-overs matches. There is a new selection committee and a few new ideas. We only have something like 15 ODIs before we get to India for the World Cup, so we have to make every one of them count.
