to go if they are to qualify for the upcoming ODI WC. They can't afford to lose any matches, games abandoned because of bad weather will count against them. Now is not the time to stuff around.......I'm saying select the best.

Anyone who thinks the current team can win the WC is delusional the game the other day was for England to lose so the Proteas can count themselves extremely lucky.

The two players who numb the attack is the ordinary Parnell, his obvious replacement is Jansen....period. Next up would be club standard Shamsi who went for an economy of 10.31 the highest of either team. His replacement should be the big hitting George Linde. The two English spinners in comparison went for 5.50 and 6.37. Magala is ordinary, I'd have the 22yr old Gerald Coetzee instead who bowls around the 150km/h mark....period. What a nice prospect to have, two quicks bowling in succession with scorching pace.

Batting changes....I'm calling out Markram who's had more than enough chances, his

replacement would be Dewald Brevis. 

Club standard Klaasen I'd replace with Donavan Ferreira. 

Both new batsmen gives us bowling options plus there's the added advantage of a long tail with Linde batting at 8.

Klaasen is the 4th highest scorer in this competition and his average is 51.

...from SA, only Faf has done better thanks to his one-in-a-lifetime 100 other day.

Coetzee ahead of Ngidi.
