Hansie Cronje: RIP
I know I know this is rather late in the day, but I'd completely forgotten that Hansie Cronje is no more. Cricket writers can't stop talking about him when they mention S. Africa, so I was surprised why he hasn't opined on the World Cup yet, until I realized...
It would have been fantastic for Hansie to be competing in this Cup. He would most certainly have taken S. Africa to the second stage and then we'd have a solid lineup of well-captained fully-manned teams going into the semis (Australia, New Zealand, India and S. Africa). Come to think of it, that would have made it 3 teams from the southern hemisphere vs one from the northern.
