    De Lange is capable of bowling some great balls, overs even, but he isn't actually that good a bowler. He is somewhat down the pecking order of SA quicks, even if Steyn, Morkel injured and Abbott out of the picture, I reckon there's probably at least 3 or 4 guys ahead of him in the pecking order.
    Yup.

    It was confirmed by the Knights that De Lange isn't going Kolpak. Also think he can't anyway, because he hasn't played enough Tests or ODIs recently to qualify.

    De Lange was never the same after that injury.

    That's a shame, he seemed very promising when SA toured in 2012.

    Hopefully we should at the very least be competitive in the limited-overs games. Interesting to see that SL clinched the T20 series in South Africa 2-1 today.

    You see the South African side? Apart from AB, more no names than an English T20 side.

    Yeah, Tests obviously they're favourites, but I'll be disappointed if we don't win the T20 game in a canter & win the ODI series.

    While I think Philander & Rabada will be a handful in the tests, I do think their batting looks quite frail.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we get another:
    South Africa bat first and we roll them for 280 and think we're in.
    Then we get rolled for 100 and 120 respectively.

    There will be a 500+ innings somewhere in the series though.

    Should hopefully only miss one Test then. Really don't have a lot of faith in Henry at the moment. Who else is an option for 3rd seamer?

    That's unfortunate for Wagner.

    Also, can we move the Napier test somewhere else please? If 5mm of rain can destroy a whole day's play then you could probably lose the whole test if there's one proper downpour at the start.

    Edit: Correction, it's only the 4th ODI at McLean Park, the tests are Dunedin, Wellington, Hamilton. Still sounds like NZC are considering moving it (though more likely will just cross fingers and hope).

    Unsurprisingly, Geenty is painting this as opening the door for Ferguson.

    Race on for Neil Wagner's test replacement as he faces tight timeframe for first South Africa test | Stuff.co.nz

    Surely, though, Ferguson should be their man for South Africa if Wagner falls short.

    The Auckland 150kmh man was impressive in game one of the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy against Australia and this season has 18 first-class wickets at 22. His extra pace and aggression provides a point of difference and he could provide a Wagner-like intimidatory role at University Oval.
    Just so much fail in that quote.
