Indeed it was a typical McKenzie dismissal, lunging forward continually does have its drawbacks but despite scoring 23 it was 'good' knock if you can describe scoring such a small figure good. But it was encouraging from a South African perspective to finally see a man who look at ease with his game opening the innings, he was nice and compact and would have been dismissed for 40 odd, if not for the Newlands outfield which deprived him of many a onside boundary.At the highest level? That's more than I expected, but I really didn't know either way.
Anyway, McKenzie's just missed a big opportunity to cash in, although you couldn't say that opening the batting had much to do with it.
Considering South Africa tour Bangladesh and India in the near future, having McKenzie at the top wouldn't be the worst idea for himself (what with his problems with pace off the ball) and the team.
