South Africans had a good day with the ball dismissing hosts Kent for 210 in 74.2 overs at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury in their 3-day tour match. The Proteas ended the opening day’s play at 31 for 1 in 13 overs with Skipper Graeme Smith falling for 21.
To the surprise of many, only one Morkel took the field in the virtual semi-final clash between Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Super Kings. And the bigger shock was that it wasn’t Morne.
