I think that ranking is not the worst yet - the worst was 8 before Sri Lanka sent a poor team to play SA last year.   

Now Proteas are going to the Windies for a two test series and it is clear they may  soon be below Zimbabwe in the rankings,

The only solution is that the team needs to be selected on real merit - and nobody should "own" their position in the team,   I wonder what the team going to the Windies will look like,    It is very likely that it will be a foul up too, especially if the selectors continue to select failed players.

The team that should go are -

Adrian Markram, Dean Elgar, Rassie van der Dussen, Rynhardt van Tonder,  Kyle Verreinne, Quinton de Kock, Migael Pretorius,  Maharaj, Rabada,  Nortje and Ngidi.

Backup players also in the squad should be - Rickelton, Janneman Malan, Miller, Linde, Sipamla and Bavuma

Test squad sans AB.......Sarel Erwee makes his Test debut at age 31(32 in Nov.)

There is no future in picking those two players - the idea should be to build a team for up to a decade and they will not last long anyway,

Denny 

De Villiers will not play for SA again - he said  his retirement was final and that remains so.

I saw the  squads  and all  the junk players are still in the squad  - will they never learn?   Rhe squads is listed om that article.

Protea squad for Irelamd

This is just  a  repeat of the same shit selections that cost us recent series and  ine really wiobnders when these idiots start learning:-

*    5  spinners in the  test squad for the West Indires - does these idiots  know the difference between  India and the West  Indies?

*     Poor Verreinne is a back-up  for Quinton - so no game time for him.

*     Failed players abound   -   I am not even going to make a list of  them

*     the batting  line-ups will be putrid 

There is a small  chance  this lot will beat Ireland  -   Wionies no chance.       .  ,

"This is just  a  repeat of the same shit selections...."

Yep!

Duds....

Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Sisanda Magala,  Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lizaad Williams, Beuran Hendricks(super Dud).

I believe David Miller is a serial underperformer.......I mean how many WC's has he played and if anyone can remember the impression he's made then I'd like to know.

Just one consolation - they left out Smuts and Van Biljon.    Disaster in return - Elgar and Bavuma as captains.
