Moses: Welcome to EOC. Not a bad job at all I must say. I especially like the involvement of Charlize Theron in this affair. Hansie's Eleven and the Cronje Identity sound like bestsellers.

Pathan,

Thanks for the comment. I'm not sure if Hansie was a great captain or batsman but I'm not knocking his playing ability in this post. Just his judgment (which should have been better as a national captain!)

Cheers,
Samir
