Dave will be delighted - his new perfect hero who does not need coaching is retained in the team and there is no changes in the team,
Rather stupid I would say. SA is touring Pakistan soon and thereafter there are three tests against Australia, There are no back-up batsmen with any test experience and the chances are that there will be some serious flops or injuries with no replacement possibilities with even one test experience.
There is also the dreaded 6:1 problem. After near to two years of continuous batting flops Elgar and Du Plessis made good scores in the first test, If their trend of the past two years is borne in mind the mnext six tests would be a return to their flops will be inevitable.
However, what else can be expected from SAC - any foresight and planning is totally missing. ,
