    South Africa team selection

    It's currently the Club Champs on the go. 4 of the 6 teams at the final are Universities that play in their provinces 1A league in Tuks (Pretoria), Maties (Boland), Pukke (NW) & Kovsies (FS). Only Bohemians (East London) & Crusaders (Durban) are not universities. Kind of shows the landscape of...

    Debate thread for 2024 Ranking of batsmen poll

    In reply to @Coronis about why Barry Richards gets mentioned & not Procter. Can't find the post now 😁 Yeah, agreed Procter was a genuine world class player of any era. Same contemporary respect. Was just watching a Boycott masterclass on batting time & he just randomly brings up when he faced...

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Shaun Pollock always mentions him & Malcolm Marshall as mentors at Natal. He says those 2 absolutely hated going for runs & that was ingrained on him. Rawson, like Fletcher & Clift (although both were seamer all-rounders) you have to imagine they would have been capped by SA at some point if it...

    Yeah, he moved for this season. Played some 4-day games I think.

    Pite van Biljon has retired because of a blood clot in his leg. He is 38. Good for the Knights as they started to fade away a bit.

    Vale Derek Underwood

    Rip Stuff of folklore of him bowling on wet & uncovered pitches and just how tough he was to face.

    CSA T20 Challenge Batting first Always got to be mindful of where the team play the majority of their games. Sure, it is wearing pitches country wide which has not been great for T20 but the coastal venues like Paarl, PE, Durban and CT , IT will be even tougher to hit the spinners no doubt. I...

    Also got to see a bit more of Gideon Peters. Cleaned up for Border in Div 2 and got his Div 1 chance with NW now. Got decent returns in the 4-day stuff. Whilst he went for runs yesterday, there looks like quite a bit to work with. Great lines in his action. Strong but easy moving and has good...

    Nqaba Peter really putting his name down as the wrist spinner that hopefully pushes Shamsi. Going by this tournament which is obviously weaker and more watered down than SA20 but you have to start somewhere to go to the next level. He looks like a bit of Anil Kumble in style.

    Looks like Jean Du Plessis will be signing for the Warriors. As ever I'm not sure what the consequences are for him or even Rudi Second, JP King and George van Heerden in terms of regular game time. Duanne Olivier and Malusi Siboto look like heading back to Bloemfontein where they started their...

    Haven't trusted selected panels for ages in SA. They all have to be swayed by politics at some point. I guess Enoch Nkwe is controlling quite a bit as director of cricket along with coaches Conrad and Walter. Would rather just keep it as is. Conrad getting quite a bit of flak for his left field...

    Then Eddie Barlow walked in and with Andre Bruyns and Hylton Ackerman + 1 or 2 others like Chevalier, Swart, Morris, Bowditch started to add your Hobson's, Kirsten's, Le Roux's, Lamb's, , Kuiper's, Jefferies' and things were starting to change. Love this interview and the awe Tony Borrington...

    SA Domestic History

    In the 1950s WP basically provided captains like Cheetham and Van Ryneveld of note. Vd Merwe was similar but was EP for the 65/66 England tour win as captain. But in those times I guess they played their part as professionalism wasn't really a thing yet.

    Also on Chris Wilkins. Was surprised he wasn't selected to play against DH Robins teams in the 70s as he was regularly in the 1st and 2nd XI best of the best games and rated highly by his bigger name peers. Remember reading Garth Le Roux say, only 2 people ever hit him back over his head for 6...

    Chris Duckworth above was also a wk who played two Tests for SA and played with David Lewis for Rhodesia. So odd when you later had Duckworth & Lewis. Natal obviously got back on the map winning the Castle Cup in 94/95 & 96/97. The first wins since Mike Procter's class of 80/81 as they had a...

    South Africa team selection

    It does look like those 3 + Nqaba Peter. Not sure if it's a case of opportunity, trust or finger spinners they competing with are more reliable. Hopefully we see a bit more of Seleka and Peter in next year's SA20 & Kaber gets a move to Div 1.
