How will SA hatch a plan to halt slide against England?
With no selectors, it will be up to Cricket SA CEO Thabang Moroe to assemble a squad
Cape Town — It is no surprise that not one of the players who were in SA’s men’s Test squad in India in October is among the leading runscorers in the franchise first-class competition.
The leading bowler‚ on the same score‚ is George Linde‚ who is sixth among the wicket-takers.
So the selectors have little to go on for a plan to halt the slide.
Right. Except that‚ until late October‚ the relevant suit was interim director of cricket Corrie van Zyl — who has been suspended.
That might mean the job of assembling the squad to play one of the most important series in SA’s history will fall to Cricket SA CEO Thabang Moroe.
Neither that Anrich Nortjé and Kagiso Rabada are two of the leading 10 wicket-takers‚ with George Linde 12th in the batting charts and joint fifth among the bowlers.
“If you look at the MSL‚ a lot of guys are coming through and they’re playing really well‚” Dale Steyn of the Cape Town Blitz told reporters at Kingsmead on Sunday after the match against the Durban Heat.
But Lubbe is probably not among the answers to the questions SA face heading into the England series.Read more: Business Day
