The squad is as follows and the stupid selections are highlighted:-
Quinton de Kock (captain), Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, Kyle Verreynne, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Jon-Jon Smuts, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Lutho Sipamla, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje, George Linde, Keshav Maharaj.
I still cannot understand why Du Plessis - after continuous failures this year is brought back into the squad. Who must he replace in the batting line-up anyway? As to JJ Smuts and Beuren Hendricks one can only laugh at best.
I can understand that Malan is out with an injury problem - so from that lot I would pick the following starting line-up:-
De Kock, Bavuma, Van der Dussen, Verreynne. Klaasen, Miller, Linde, Phehlukwayo, Ngidi, Nortje, Sipamla.
Shamsi is apparently being rested and I pick Linde since he is a better all-rounder from a betting perspective than Maharaj.
