The fact is that Elgar since 2019 had a spotty record as a batsman and a really questionable record in fielding. The only exception was the Srilanka series - where the bowling attack of the was destriyed by injuries and even the disastrous Faf du Plessis made runs.
How can anyone think that Elgar should be considered as Captain. In a newspaper article reference was made to Allan Bprder - when the Aussies did not make hay and effectively in decline. Players as they fget older suffers from deficient eye-hand co-ordination and to get Elgar soon to be 34 years old as captain is about as stupid as Meyer was aas Springbok coach. It will be a disaster,
New Reeza Hendricks claims he should be a fixture in the Proteas team, He was good in the recent T20 series - but was a total disaster whenever he was selected to play for the Proteas. Some players cannot make the step up from provincial to national level and Reeza is a typical example of that. That will not change in future and if he is selected he would be a disgraceful failure unless the Proteas play Namibia or Zimbabwe.
Of the batsmen in the T20 series and the provincial cricket over the last three months - the rising stars gunning for selection show the most potential. I still support Van Tonder is the only real potential captain.
