    His ODI form was horrible in the last series he played. He was dropped and hasn't been recalled.

    In saying that though, he clearly should have been selected anyway, based on:
    a) His superb ODI record overall.
    b) The fact that Bosman clearly isn't ODI standard.

    Also slogger555, since this is specific to one particular squad, you should have posted it in the official tour thread.

    The 15 man squad SA chose for this series is shocking. They will still win the series though .

    Bosman has not scored a run all year. Disgrace

    I think politics may have had a hand in getting Loots Bosman in the squad, sure Dippenaar had a bad series but he is a pretty classy ODI player.

    Heh? Yuh think? It's pretty obvious that Bosman is in the squad because he's black. South Africa had targets to meet. They met the target. Congrats to them.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I suppose the other question about BD is how on earth does he still manage to make their test side?

    Boeta Dippenaar has long been messed-around by SAfrican selectors.

    He repeatedly does terribly in Tests... so he keeps being recalled. He rarely does a thing wrong in ODIs... and gets dropped more often than Graeme Hick.

    Honestly, of all the SAfricans who could think "stuff this, I'm off to play in England" I'm truly astonished he wasn't the first and most prominent of all.

    Nobody in the thread had said it so far, so I thought I would mention it.

    Its so obvious that it shouldn't even be mentioned on the forums? Fairly useless reply.

    Off-topic I know, but while on the subject of our hero, when did 'Boeta' come from to be the name that he is known by?

    Love the middle name of Human.

    Granted I'm no expert, but surely there are other black players who are better then Bosman?

    It really shouldn't matter though - Dippenaar is better than him, black or not. Argument for the other thread though, I guess.

    Of course there is, Loots must have something on Haroon Lorgat because God knows why he gets into the ODI side. Quota's or not there is at least five or more better coloured cricketers than this mid 90's throwback. Good option for a 20/20 side but when your top order can't buy a run most of the time having a walking wicket isn't the most smartest of selections. Personally I donít think Boeta should be in the side as well, his also struggling and with AB and Smith opening (with Gibbs in reserve) you donít need another opener in your squad. If AB fails, just give Gibbs the job back, on flat West Indian wickets, worries about his technique really shouldnít be of concern.

    Isn't it obvious? Matthew Prior got 11 games for the exact same reason.

    "He's a big-hitter".

    Such a thing routinely clouds the selection of players for ODIs - the fact that when they hit it it goes a long way often clouds the fact that they don't hit it very often.
