Yet in the domestic circuit they have some exciting prospects who can't seem to get in.

Another example of South Africa fielding players who are there based on their skin colour.
Dala, Sipamla (not a limited overs bowler), Hendricks, Andile all getting selected. This is a really poor side.
When you have Nandre Burger in the squad and Ryan Rickelton

I've watched 19 balls from Malan batting and he's already shown me why he's the next big thing in LOI cricket. There's almost a perfect blend between Gibbs and De Villiers. Stupidly talented kid. It just goes to show that if the selectors get the correct players in the correct positions SA have the muscle to still be one of the best sides in the world.

Dala being selected in this side is just an absolute joke

International T20s don't matter much except for the World Cup, so it's ok if they fill in the transformation targets in these games. Also a lot of players got selected because as per the original schedule the main players were supposed to go back to prepare playing Australia.

The players dug deep in this game at least with the bat, but the bowling looking toothless

Here's a name I almost forgot about.

Dewald Brevis - just remember that name.

Another shocking team selection.

They've selected Andile and Sipamla again even though they've been pummeled this series. Nandre Burger has just been carrying drinks for lesser players this series and its a joke.

Okele is a good player too.
Smuts and Van Biljion should be nowhere near this side.

South Africa are the epitome of a side on decline. What thr actual fuck was Andile doing at the end there with the ball ?! Full tosses and wides and no balls. That's absolutely pathetic.

Fortain, Andile, Sipamla and Dala absolutely have no warrant to be in this T20 side now. Really shocking

International sport becomes a mockery when teams are picked along racial lines and not epitome of excellence.

Taking Ryan Rickleton and Nandre Burger but not playing them was absolutely pathetic. Malan has shown that he could be the next best thing in terms of opening the batting in LOI'S
