Time for Proteas to heed warning signs - Wessels

Photo
The victory by Sri Lanka over the Proteas at Kingsmead in the second test match was really a remarkable performance. After the drubbing the Sri Lankan team received at the hands of South Africa at SuperSport Park it was difficult to see a way back for them in the series.

BONELESS TONGUE CAN TELL ANY THING. ACCORDING TO KEPPA(KEPLER) WESSELS OUR PRESENT TEAM IS V.WEAK. YES MAN WE HAVE A PLENTY OF CRICKETERS RESTING BACK IN SRILANKA DURING THIS FESTIVE SEASON THAT IS WHY WE SEND THIS SECOND GRADE TEAM BUT THEY ARE FAR AND FAR BETTER THAN YOUR WORLD CLASS TEAM. NOW YOU CAN UNDERSTAND IF WE SENT OUR BEST TEAM THEY WOULD HAVE FINISHED THE MATCH IN TWO DAYS.THAT IS THE REASON WE DID NOT SEND OUR BEST TEAM BUT STILL WE HAVE A MASSIVE CONFIDENCE ON OUR PRESENT TEAM. I THINK NOW YOU CAN HEAR THE LIONS HAVE STARTED TO ROAR. HEY WESSELS KEEP IT IN YOUR MIND WE ARE DESCENDANT OF LIONS.

Wessles isnt the flavor of the month in SL but he raises a valid point for SA - they really should be winning and winning well in all forms of cricket but the reality is they havent won a series at home in their last 4 and have time and again failed in tournaments.

I see Wessles has failed to show any respect to SL by making another bold statement that SA should win the thrid test easily. Its a reasonable call but not when you just said the SA 'A' team would beat SL. There is a limit to how much of a fool one is willing to look and appearently Kepple is more than willing.

@Jay : who said we are descendents of lions? Its mythology and not true! Lanka never had lions and tigers! Its only mentioned in the Mahavansa, which is part true and part fiction like Greek mythology!

How is is possible to for a beast(lion) to procreate with a human?

Mahavansa was written in the 5th century AD by a buddhist monk named Mahanamna and was written in pali, not even in Sinhala.

If we are descendents of Lions, then the aborminable snowman (Yeti), Tasmanian Devil and Lockness monster really do exist!

As for Keplers comments, do commentators have to always make goody two shoes comments like Tony Greig?

You people are too sensitive and immature, grow up!

Kepler Wessels has an opinion just like Sana boy said SA choked.

It hit a raw nerve with some fans, but he is entitled to his opinion just like you and I, and most here on IC have an opinion. He was not racist and was not being personal to any individual Lankan cricketer.

It may have been hurtful and embarrassing but thats his view and it was upto our cricketers to prove him wrong and that they did in grand style!

So grow up and dont act like adolescence teenage girls during their menstrual cycle!

I can see most people have gone berserk over Kepler's comments.

But in retrospect, what he said was not utter crap. We couldn't drag the first test beyond 2.5 days and wasted 2.5.

We were pathetic against aussies in our own backyard and in UAE which catered similar slow/flat conditions.

Considering all those aspects no-one hardly pin-pointed at Kepler when he made those comments, merely because most people had nothing to say against his remarks. Now everyone goes berserk since we've won the 2nd test. Mind you consistency is what matters and I hope we won't make it a one match wonder.
