for coach Gibson to decide on a final makeup of the WC squad. He has at his disposal a world class attack and that's the easy bit but as we all know batting is a major problem and getting worse not better. I question the merits of Dale Benkenstein as the batting coach, he has nothing to show for a less than average Protea performance, on the contrary Gibson, an above average bowler at his best has improved the attack.
The WC is not going to be won by a team with only an attack, it's going to be won by a team that excels in both bat and ball. Gibson has made an awful mistake fronting with 5 recognised batsmen. Markram should be playing in all of the ODI games so as to gain experience and the duds should have been culled.
