Surely that's a good thing then having a lot of Saffers playing domestic cricket over here increasing standards? And as things stand, Kieswetter and Dernbach are only playing in the One Day side, and I don't see that changing with the way Prior is playing and the strength of our current bowling attack.
There's no doubt you're right about the impact KP and Trott have in the team, but reaching the top of the pile is as much down to the impact of the Englishmen in the team as it is down to the Saffers.
