South African squad for ICC Champions trophy


International Coach
I prefer Hashim opening just because he's not a role of the dice. We have plenty of proven match winners down the order.
They hardly get a chance to bat because we have Smith and Kallis who can bat the majority of the overs and our batting line-up is supreme.

The only person in the world currently playing that can match Tendulkars talent is Herschelle Herman Gibbs and on his day he will win you a match single handedly and he can hit sixes unlike Amla.

You need risk takers like Gibbs to open in ODI cricket.

Hashim is unfortunate but even if he scores a hundred Gibbs will return as the flair player and better fielder and more experience with 21 ODI hundreds of which 5 have been in major ICC events.
