Protea round up

Posted on/at 4:29 PM by The Cricket Corollary

What exactly is going on in Protea-land?

Smithy is back! He is back in top shape and has started practising again this week after undergoing surgery to his elbow in June.


"Just look how skinny I am!"


"I started hitting tennis balls the first time today. It was quite an exciting day"


Oh, no! Is that a double chin?

Tsotsobe is back in the squad! There's also some dreadful news fora large group of fangirls. There is only one other change in the 15-player squad which completed the home MTN ODI series against Australia with Robin Peterson being picked over Morne Morkel.

"Langeveldt is not fit enough yet to be considered after his shoulder surgery and Morne Morkel is the unlucky one to miss out," Procter said.

Graeme Smith (Nashua Cape Cobras, capt)
Johan Botha (Chevrolet Warriors, vice-capt)
Hashim Amla (Nashua Dolphins)
Mark Boucher (Chevrolet Warriors)
AB de Villiers (Nashua Titans)

JP Duminy (Nashua Cape Cobras)
Herschelle Gibbs (Nashua Cape Cobras)
Jacques Kallis (Chevrolet Warriors)
Albie Morkel (Nashua Titans)

Makhaya Ntini (Chevrolet Warriors)
Wayne Parnell (Chevrolet Warriors)

Robin Peterson (Nashua Cape Cobras)

Dale Steyn (Nashua Titans)

Lonwabo Tsotsobe (Chevrolet Warriors)
Roelof van der Merwe (Nashua Titans)

Awe, he lost his baby fat.
Yes, I like Smiffy. ;)
This is sad news about Morne, but I am glad Lonwabo is back in the squad. It's difficult, there are so many talented players at the moment. I wonder if Ntini, Lonwabo, Amla & Petersen will get a game.

He did not lose his baby fat Bella! It's all tucked underneath the suit. Yeah Bon, I don't see a difference either!

Morne's lover will be bitterly disappointed...have you broken the news to her yet?

It's funny how this 'elbow' surgery coincided with him getting slimmer. I don't wanna cause an uproar but I have one word, liposuction.

Stani, you rogue...

She used to check in at the Corollary.

Stani, I think you are right about the lipo. Everything underneath that 'oversized suit' could be slimmed down but the silly boy forgot about his face.
