By the way, good to see de Kock enter.
Pakistan will win Odi series.Faf du Plessis, the South Africa batsman, has been appointed full-time Twenty20 captain, beginning with the matches against Pakistan, after AB de Villiers requested to stand down from the role. The development means South Africa will have a different captain for each format, with Graeme Smith leading the Test side, de Villiers the ODI team and du Plessis the T20 side.
Du Plessis had filled in for de Villiers during the T20 series against New Zealand at home as well, after de Villiers cited the need for rest because of his workload, which includes wicketkeeping.
ODI squad: AB de Villiers (capt), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Faf du Plessis, Colin Ingram, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Robin Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Graeme Smith, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
Twenty20 squad: Faf du Plessis (capt), Kyle Abbott, Farhaan Behardien, Henry Davids, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Chris Morris, Justin Ontong, Robbie Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe
I would have liked to have seen de Kock instead of Ingram or Behardien too but I can understand only playing Quinton in the T20s for now. He seemed a bit rash in the ODIs against NZ.de Kock is unlucky to miss out on the Odis when the awful Ingram gets a gig. Lack of adventure in their selection. And Ontong is still magically hanging around,.
He has put his hand during our 4 day season. was the leading wicket taker ( averaged 15). So his call up is well deserved IMO.So is the new guy any good?
Says medium pace on cricinfo, interesting choice if he is only that quick when you already have philander at a similar pace in the side.
South Africa couldn’t call up a replacement batsman as there is no franchise cricket occurring in the area. If the Lions (Jo’Burg) were playing at home tonight, then one of their guys could make the short trip up and play, most likely de Kock but the Lions are in Natal and the Titans (Pretoria franchise) in Eastern Province.Batsmen injured and they bring in a bowler?
You sure they won't bring Rudolph in instead?

They could have gone and called up Stephen Cook, he is currently playing amateur cricket with Gauteng at the Wanderers against Rory Kleinveldt's brother but that would be really left field.
