Marco Jansen can bowl in any situation, says Mumbai Indians IPL captain Rohit Sharma
So true - but remember Hendricks, Magala, Williams and a list of others are ahead of him on the Proteas selection line\up. I was surprised about the fact that Mumbai "bought" him at the auction and even more so by the fact that they used him on Friday, But them he is only 21 years old and at that age he cannot possibly be selected to play for SA, Mumbai must have seen something in him that our top class selectors and coach not surprisingly missed out on. It would be interesting to see how he progresses in the IPL. I think he replaced Coulter-Nile in the Mumbai squad and if he continues to make hay - he will be a very wealthy man in two years time.
There is a problem though - he is a White.
By the way did you notice that Faf - the great favorite of Boucher - was out for a duck yesterday when playing for Chennai?
Selection I know is a tough gig to achieve at CSA.......for one there's the age restriction, no-one under 30 years of age, secondly you have to be a no-hoper like Bala, Dala and Magala and then of course it ain't gonna help if you're white.
And oh Mike,,,,,,Faf wasn't the only player to score zip......Dhoni did as well. Just thought I'd square that up while you're getting carried away with your pet hate.
By the way I nearly fell off my chair laughing when you made reference to "Bala, Dala and Magala". Thanks for that,
Both Du Plessis and Dhoni are past their sell-by dates. Both are very unlikely to have an IPL player job next year if Chennai failed again this year,
As far as I know there will be -
* two new teams added to the IPL next year; and
* the clubs will have to release all players and a mega-auction is to take place next year that will push up the income levels of top performing players massively.
