I warned about the opening pair repeatedly and said Amla was trying to protect his wicket in the first ODI and failed in over 40 to 50 to make a real impact so as to ensure hiss election. Hendricks is not an international player at all.
So what happened today? Amla clean-bowled for 8 and Hendricks out for 5. Both as expected failed I what they were supposed to chase of only 204.
Amla's eye-hand co=ordination is gone and he should not be in the WC squad - he will be a dead loss in that series, Hendricks should be dropped from the squad asap.
