is going to be announced tomorrow. I'll be pleasantly surprised if Amla is not part of the squad and I'm ready to bet that he will be part of the squad. Make no mistake that even without Amla it's the worst batting order ever to represent the Proteas at a WC, his inclusion only makes it worse.
It's ironic that on the other end of the scale the bowling attack is the best ever to go to the WC. Three world class bowlers in Rabada, Ngidi and Steyn and added to that is the world class leggie, Tahir. One can't ask for much better.
It won't be enough though to win the WC. Pulling the side down are two ordinary allrounders, a franchise level opener in Hendricks and a club level spinner in Shamsi......and then of course there's Duminy.....eina !
One underestimated factor is Faf du Plessis, a captains captain, smart and influential, if anyone can make it happen it will be him.
