He fractured his hand. Who will they pick? Sipamla? Hendrix?

I would probably go for Sipamla - Hendricks is useless on international level,  but neither will replace him - apparently SA Cricket had selected Morris to relace him.

Morris had a very good IPL  and he has other matches to play still in that competition.   He was partly the key to Delhi being placed third on the IPL log - while having the same number of log points than  the first two - but with a difference in points causing the third place. 

Very sorry about Nortje - he was our secret weapon and  had all the potential of being a champion bowler in that series,  Bad news that one - but he is still young with a long international career looming.

Probably for the best.....Morris is better positioned to contribute at this stage. Nortje hopelessly over hyped and needs years of experience in the highly disciplined short game format.

So Moz, who would you have picked ahead of the "overhyped" Nortje?

Okay, perhaps overhyped is too strong....inexperienced at top level is a better objection. Playing Sri Lanka at home isn't WC pressure.

Another player earning Mozart Pet Hate Status without the latter ever seen him playing.

Other than KG, Ngidi and Steyn he is the best of the rest.
