This is what happens when a bloke gets picked without some serious game time and wickets under his belt at FC level, though. He's 25 but, spin development-wise, he's probably more like 20 and having to learn the tools of the trade at Test level is a bloody tough ask. I mean, people talk about his gun speeds and flat trajectory as if he should have had all this worked out by now but forget he was picked with bugger-all FC cricket under his belt. He debuted in FC cricket in 2011.
Really needed a season or two of winning games regularly for SA but the Test side's obsession with uncovering the next spin bowling genius has forced the situation a bit. He's definitely got the most potential of any spinner in the country but he'll take more time yet.
