 25yr old Janneman Malan continues on with his success at the crease as he chalks up 139 runs off 203 balls faced n/out. You'd have to ask why wasn't he selected.......cry me a river!!!!

Yep makes absolutely no sense at all - he is a quality player - far better option than Klaasen who flatters only to deceive most of the time

Well, I know of at least one fringe player that he could easily replace.

How the hell can you leave out a high quality specialist batsman when everyone knows that the Proteas have a batting crisis. Janneman Malan's absence might be the reason why the Proteas fall short of making the semi finals or for that matter winning the championships. I dare anyone to say he wouldn't have scored more runs than the one hit wonder Klaaaaasen and the non hit wonder Pretorius. Jirre Jesus if these two were players of colour they would have been tossed aside as quotas.

Pretorious is so shit. Mulder should be in ahead of him. Andile is far better as well

Klaasen is a back-up keeper.

I get his inclusion in the squad but not in the match day side while Quintie isn’t protesting.

"Pretorious is kak. Mulder should be in ahead of him."

Funny how more often than not we think alike and to be fair Mikey as well. Some talent that kid, thing is Boucher never gave him an extended run so he's a bit green with experience. All credit to Chippo for spotting him a while back.

Mulder swings the ball which is a bonus, brings an added dimension to the attack.

Mulder is a proper bat as well unlike pretender Pretorious

Nov 02, 2021, 03:09

Odd how similar to Pretorius  his stats are though after 23 internationals…but you are sure the one is a proper bat and the other a pretender Dave?

Nov 02, 2021, 15:28

Yes compare their first class career stats

But saying that Mulder has always looked the part but yet to really impose himself while for me Pretorious has always looked pretty average and is 32 now - move on
