Is it just me or does SA's decision to pick Jean-Paul Duminy as a batsman for their series v SL and the Champions Trophy seem slightly pointless if they are just going to bat him at no8 like they seem to so far?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but as he is a specialist batsman (isn't he?), doesn't batting him at 8 kind of defeat the point of picking him? I know he took a wicket today but from what I hear he isn't really an all-rounder. If you're looking for a no8 to go in behind Pollock and before Boje then why not pick Andrew Hall?
