Liked the 30-man squad chosen for the T20 squad. I like the names of 4 new players on that list...Ingram, Miller, Kemp and Theron.
Ingram captained SA schools in 03/04 and showed early promise. Things have come hard for him though but really has been impressive in both the MTN40 and Pro20 being the leading run-scorer in both comps. He has a good head on him and a good technique so I'm sure 4-day performances will come as well.
Miller is just an outrageous timer of the cricket ball and at 20 could be a real star of the future. He effortlessly strikes sixes and this has been a break through season for him. He has all the shots in the book but as a young stroke-maker from Durban in can be difficult to get the scores on a domestic Durban track but he has stood out this season. Excellent fieldsman of the Jonty, Gibbs and AB variety.
Theron is just the ever consistent and a call-up is edging closer with a national contract being given to him.
Kempy could just sneak in ahead of Albie. Kemps had a good season and with Albie bowling off the radar since his injury there could be a re-call for Kemp.
Just on Vandiar and Rossouw. Guys I have watched them a lot this season and they have been pathetic. Both don't have techniques but more importantly they don't have a cricketing brain. All they want to do is attack bowling...they want to hit 6,6,4 and then go out in stead of a Ingram/Miller/Elgar who will get a 6 or 4 and make sure they get a single next ball if its not a bad bad ball.
Then Vandiars feet are stuck in the toilet and all he does is throw his hands at the ball. Doesn't even lean into a cricket shot like a Gibbs will do. Vandiar has been worked over this season and will only score runs against poor bowling because all you need to do is come around the wicket to him and tuck him up. Bowl him a bouncer and then a full pitched delivery and take your pick from a soft dismissal like caught cover or caught slip or bowled or LBW.
