I wonder whether we realized how lucky we are hat some players are not in the Protea squad. So lets see why I am making thatstatement:
After a break in the IPL - the series was moved to the Gulf States and is back on. The first two matches played had Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers playing. So what happened with those two players :-
* Faf in a opening batter - faced three balls and was out or a duck; and
* AB was out for a duck first ball bowled at him.
Unlike Mozart's mania about experience and age being a real requirement for selection the fact is that both were not up toi standard anymore and could play for IPL teams - but are not up to standard anymore when it comes to international cricket. .
