Oh Dear, a mother of a faux pas .....
Roelof did better than everybody else but I'm not sure he'll get a shot for the Proteas cos he's getting on a bit.
Roelof you blithering Buffoon is an expat South African who represented South Africa at both age and national level. He currently represents the Dutch national side and did so as recently as the T20 2021 WC. He was a member of the team who embarrassed the Proteas in their infamous encounter.
Here once again.....geniet!
Hall Of Fame
Have highlighted the important ones and moved those that should be near the top 10 up...overall rankings are on the left.
The biggest loser here as far as I can tell has been Maharaj. Particularly since Markram did well with the ball...far better, and scored more runs.
Coetzee, the young guy some of us were talking about, ended with great bowling stats, just behind our Mitchel Johnson.
Anrich "Mitch" Nortje was dangerous and fast throughout. We need to look after him because he's easily one of the most dangerous bowlers in the world right now. Fast, accurate, and is doing his best to emulate Mitch's Golden years...which even if he only manages to do 50% of is still a great result. Probably the most interesting player for the Proteas right now.
Magala did well, but I'm not much of an underdog guy when it comes to cricket. Lose weight, get fit and then maybe.
Roelof did better than everybody else but I'm not sure he'll get a shot for the Proteas cos he's getting on a bit. Bowled a few brilliant deliveries though.
The batting is much of a muchness, with Klaasen being my pick...based on the amount of runs and his average.
Markram hit a couple of big scores and that really helped his cause. His 100 was a good knock. Still, there's something no right there. There's something about his aura that says he's not feeling confident. Even during his 100 knock, there were times when one could tell his body language was that of someone trying to affirm belief in himself. Almost awkward. He got lots of runs though so well done to the guy...and confirmed that he should be a steady part of the SA bowling attack, particularly in the short format. He's an all-rounder, like we've been saying for ages now.
Brevis and Stubbs both finished in the top 20 which is decent to see but we have to admit that they may need a while longer before being ready for international cricket proper.
I'm probably more disappointed by Brevis than I'd i like to be. He looks like he wants to carry the big hitter tag. That's fine, but then put yourself into a position where you can have those big innings. He doesn't appear to be interested in rotating strike...or not as much as he should be. Hopefully that changes, I'm sure it will.
