Mulder debuted yesterday and had a good outing with the pip.
Clocked up to 142Kph (88mph) at 19 years old. And apparently he's more of a batting all-rounder.
Absolutely superb to see such an exciting prospect come through like this.

Andile is purely a limited overs player due to his lack of pace. Barely touching 80mph in test cricket doesn't cut the mustard.
Would rather have a Dwayne Pretorious in the mixer

Yeah Mulder was certainly impressive, was bowling a yard quicker than when I last saw him. Definitely a lot if raw talent to work with.

He's taken a fiver, brilliant...what's your point. Doesn't necessarily mean he's a born text bowler. I'm just saying, I really rate him in limited over cricket, but until he builds up more pace I can't see him being a long term test option. Not when kids like Mulder are knocking about.

Lungi Ngidi thoroughy destroying the Lions...

Lucky Bangladesh had to face Duanne Olivier. Rabada-Ngidi would've humiliated them beyond bearable proportions.

Absolutely warms my heart!

Soon all of Ngidi, Rabada, Bavuma, Ramela and Phehlukwayo will be in the Test XI, and the Proteas will be even more dominant!

Until Vernon Philander builds more pace what is he?

You're actually comparing Philander to Andile? You lose so so much credibility when you say such stupid things.

Philander was a proven FC performer before he even got selected in a test match, and Philander is a couple of miles an hour quicker...oh and he moves the ball prodigiously every single over. Not to mention the fact he has a strong wrist position.

Andile's wrist is all over the place, he doesn't move the ball enough and doesn't have the pace to supplement this lack of movement.
The fact you can even utter Philander's name in the same sentence is pure buffoonery.

Or perhaps a trio would have done, since Olivier is a proven FC performer and test wicket taker

Don't worry about talking bowling wrist positions to Hhm the only wrist position he knows is when he's holding his ...... well you know what :D
