Does Kepler have a point?

I have to agree with him that, given our current ranking, we did well to make the semi-finals in the ICC World Twenty20 Cup in Bangladesh. Yes, I was as devastated as you when we lost to India, but we were outplayed tactically. Wessels is never one to mince his words, which is possibly why […]

It’s all to play for!
