    SIDDHARTH: We were talking about the team, not the individuals. Elgar is currently 4th in runs for the series, with 1 & 2 being Root & Amla - not bad for hardly a world beater, wouldn't you say? As for a worse team - there was no Rabada, but no Duminy either. The world beaters were probably Root, Stokes, Bairstow, Anderson, Broad right? Tell us about the state of the game - the players are the game, because without them there won't be one. What this does show is that the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack - it is a team game in which the whole is MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS! There are still 2 tests left, but do give respect where it is due.

    SIDDHARTH ....why the sour grapes ? Are you scared of the Proteas too? BTW you picked on a few individuals and said they are not world beaters .....What about the rest of the team? There is no I in TEAM. It is how a group comes together and works as one to win... like I stated they are not as good as the previous SA team that was number one but this SA team is the best the world has right now, Enjoy them,

    @Siddharth: Missing Rabada was a blow, yes, but it wasn't necessarily a worse team. It didn't have walking-wicket Duminy, for starters. I think it's clear that missing Faf for the first test was a bigger blow than missing Rabada for this one.

    Didn't Vern win a MoM on the recent Aussie tour? Or was it a MoS without a Mom?

    @CRICINFOUSER take a chill pill. I think that sums that the state of the game rather than how good the team are. Elgar, Kuhn, Bavuma are hardly world beaters.

    I think this game just shows how important a captain is. This SA team looked like a disaster 1wk ago and now a worse team (without Rabada) just destroyed England

    Well they were calling for the real SA to stand up.....how you like them now ??? This protea team has been destroying nations all around the world for a decade . Yes they might not have legends like Smith,kallis ,ABD and Steyn anymore but they still are the best that this planet has to offer.
