Shane Warne who is fan of the South Africans touring his country said the Proteas lacked imagination. Just because he got the better of a few South Africans he has started calling them his bunnies. In fact, since he cannot do much as way of advocacy in his own side he says South Africa's captain is unimaginative and that their main weakness is that the visitors have no variety in their bowling (read: they have no Shane Warne in the side) which is why their team is 'weak'.
The Australian batsmen meanwhile have felt just how vulnerable they are against the pace attack of South Africa. To give an example, both Australian centurions, Ponting and Hussey, were dropped very early in their inning and according to commentator Tony Greig, the score of 355 would have been 190 something less had those catches been taken. Also Warne says he was least impressed with Justin Kemp, the guy whose fighting half-century saved the match for the South Africans in Perth. Kemp has laughed more than once at Warne. Poor Warne has been told many times unofficially that he need not gloat about all those wickets because whatever lbws or snicks umpires had given him, at least half were more than just doubtful.
Some South Africans went so far as to repeat what Ranatunga had said earlier, Warne is just a creation of their media. Warne is also not pleased with Ashwell Prince and says his accent is all wrong as is his approach while playing Warne. Some say, and this could be a rumour after he was introduced to Warne if the 'fat boy who waddled was a medium pacer."
