Our ODI team seems reasonably well sorted on the batting front. Unfortunately de Kock will likely bottle it as an opener, as he has done in prior WCs. Like Markram, he would be far more natural at 5 or 6. That aside though we have depth with today’s line up. And the ability to accelerate with Markram, Klaasen, Miller and Jansen. Even Phehlukwayo looks potent way down the order.
The bowling on the other hand is less convincing. Jansen is a given, but who are the other quicks. I’m guessing Pheh and Maharaj are in favor, given this is a decider. But the Aussies imploded today, the bowlers benefitted. So it’s still hard to say where this attack is.
Nonetheless this is good team as recent Proteas teams go….hopefully the surprise this time will be positive.
