    Been a great few months of him, strange to think that Will Smith was bowling ahead of him for Hants last season, pleased for him though.

    Yeah, we have so little spin depth it is a joke. Dawson is no worse than many others and is an absolute gun fielder.

    Maybe it's considered more useful for opposition batsmen to have not seen him.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    SA squad announcement. Guess the only real surprise is no morne morkel. Personally would have picked shamsi ahead of phangiso but think its a good squad that was picked:

    South Africa squad: Faf du Plessis (capt), Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Chris Morris, Aaron Phangiso, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Dale Steyn, David Wiese.
    South Africa include Dale Steyn in World T20 squad, no room for Morne and Albie Morkel | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    Dawson will probably be reserve. Last World Cup in Bangladesh Tredwell, Ali and Parry got 1/148. Hope we last longer than 4 matches this time.

    Yeah Dawson will likely not play. Rashid/Moeen is a fairly solid combo in T20s.

    Just seen there's no Broad which is a pity.

    Finn and Topley being in the same attack is okay but might be a fielding problem.

    KP is such a bellend.

    James Vince, one international t20 series in the UAE and was quality.

    Its not as if Luke Wright was not given enough chances either.

    Just seen that we're not going to have to play Holland this time. So hopefully we can avoid them in the semis and we should be okay.

    Ravi Bopara anyone? Scored 71 not out from 43 balls today in the pakistani super league and then followed it up with 6-16 from his 4 overs...

    No thank you. He's a proven useless spud.

    I'm assuming the deadline for finalising squads hasn't yet passed then or there's no reason to allow a Narine replacement is there?

    Zimbabwe only announced their squad a few hours ago so I'm assume the deadline hasn't passed.
