De Lange was never the same after that injury.
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.
Yeah, that's fair.
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.
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).

He's injured for the season after his knee got stuck in wet turf in the T20 competition remember
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
Just so much fail in that quote.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.
