    I was convinced he'd go on to become a great Test batsman after his start against Australia. Very useful part-time offspin too. And yeah, he was great to watch.

    1. Markram
    2. QdK
    3. Faf
    4. vd Dussen
    5. Miller
    6. Duminy
    7. Phehlukwayo
    8. Rabada
    9. Steyn/Nortje
    10. Ngidi
    11. Tahir
    Still going with this.

    Spot 13 is Shamsi because he is the man invested in and done ok but more pressure will be heaped on if he doesn't step up enough during and after the world cup.

    Spot 14 can go to Amla to be reserve batsman if he wants.

    Spot 15 is probably Dwaine Pretorius' but we might as well just take 14.

    Qdk and markram need to be the opening pair. Let's see if the selectors are brave enough.

    Loyalty to Amla for such a big tournament will be a mistake.

    Same if Nortje must be picked ahead of Steyn.

    Having the experience for the league like system could be handy as back-up with 9 games and form easily could be lost or gained in so many games.

    Jeez, if De Lange had made himself available for selection our selection choices for our fast bowlers would be ridiculous. What we have is four fast, threatening wicket-takers, but de Lange is really bowling with menace at the moment too...

    Anrich Nortje ruled out of the IPL with an injury. No word yet as to whether he'll be fit for the World Cup.

    He does say form first and Reeza has not exactly lighting it up at the moment. So Amla still to go. I do worry that we don't really see the team again until June, so I don't know how much form means if you have not really played for 2 months at national level?

    With him and Ngidi consistently picking up injuries I wonder if the powers that be decide not to take Nortje .... outside chance for Sipamla? He seems pretty good in death overs, but be a helluva pick for big stage.

    Despite Abbott, de Lange, Olivier as Kolpaks, and even if Nortje and Ngidi are ruled out, we aren't looking short of quicks. Morris starting to find some wheels and some form and Sipamla starting to blossom... Good depth!

    One thing is very clear in my mind at the moment, vd der Dussen has to play. Done everything right and more imo.

    As of now, my 15 man WC squad for South Africa:

    1. Hashim Amla
    2. Quinton De Kock (WK)
    3. Francois Du Plessis (C)
    4. Rassie Van Der Dussen
    5. David Miller
    6. Jean Paul Duminy
    7. Chris Morris
    8. Kagiso Rabada
    9. Dale Steyn
    10. Lungi Ngidi
    11. Imran Tahir

    12. Aiden Markram
    13. Andile Phehlukwayo
    14. Anrich Nortje / Dwayne Pretorious
    15. Tabraiz Shamsi

    Wish De Villiers comes out of retirement and makes himself available !

    It is basically down to 2 of Amla, Hendricks & Markram. And Amla will go if the sounds coming from the SA camp are anything to go by.

    Pretorius & Nortje will go.

    Yeah Pretorious nailed his spot today. Not the worst back up to Andile to be fair to him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Pretorius ends up starting over Andile because he offers more with the bat.

    If I remember correctly, they've been talking about wanting a batting all-rounder at 7. And since Duminy can chuck some overs into the mix, they may look to shore up the batting.

    So it's a straight shoot out between Markram and Reeza. Given the choice I'd take Markram....
