Cricket: Kirsten keeps his place

SOUTH AFRICA have named an unchanged squad for the third Test against England in Durban starting on Boxing Day.

Speculation that the opener Gary Kirsten, who has scored 30 runs in three innings in the first two Tests, would be dropped from the team to make room for the wrist spinner Paul Adams, was ended by Rushdie Magiet, the selection convenor. "Gary can't be judged on his performance at the Wanderers because the wicket was very difficult, and it would be wrong to judge him on two failures here," he said.
