    South Africa beats Scotland

    SA beats Scotland in a match that was another convincing victory.

    Probably not more so than the one against the Netherlands. But maybe not... they were after all batting at 8.05 runs per over. That is a lot.

    In fact, someone at lunch the other day said... you don't need bowlers if your batsmen are good enough. And in ODI's that is true. Again SA didn't take 10 wickets. Again there wasn't a spinner that could baffle the opponents. Again the all pace attack was predictable. But if you can bat at 8.05 runs per over for 23 overs consecutively then I guess your bowlers are doing a good job if they are not going at more than 6.00 an over.

    Australia will be SA's real first game, and it will be a measure on how exactly they stand. Between those two teams, they are probably favourites and second favourites. With Sri Lanka and New Zealand probably being the 3rd and 4th places.

    I am biased, but if I try to be unbiased, I still think SA is the top team there. And people who disagree are biased towards whatever team they think are the top team.
