Since Smith and Boucher took over the Proteas were stumbling along and I believe was only the vcitors against the visiting SriLanja - the team with a seriously poor bowling attack. For the rest the Proteas are gong backweards at jey sped and they are worse than they were when the two took over,
So why is cricket going downhill faster than anytime since the start of 2019? Simple really it all has to do with team selection. The tams selected van best be described as BS and especially in the batting lime-ups pure and unadulterated BS.
That is where the selections were supershit - with players like Claassen, Smuts and virtually all others being under-performers who even on provincial levels performing poorer than real potential candidates,
The other problem is that the back-up bowlers selected were regular failures in the past - bit th braindead selections remain.
