Ottis Gibson is a good man, first. He is also a good coach, second. They are not mutually exclusive. His backroom staff is a clever mix of the old and the new although there have been some unfortunate casualties.
Much as some South Africans try to adopt a take-it-or-leave-it approach to the Ashes itâ€™s hard not to take an interest given the intensity with which the contest is always contested and the saturation media coverage. Itâ€™s hard to get away from. We donâ€™t need to apologise for being interested. Part of the problem, secretly, is the fear for some Proteas supporters that their desire to see Australia beaten may be interpreted as support for England which, of course, is a no-no.
