Coetzee can really bat! With some focus on his batting he'd be an exceptional closer in T20.

I still think Brevis is a bit one dimensional. Sounds dumb because he's done well, but I don't think he'll get close to where Stubbs is going. You just can't do that to those England bowlers unless you're freakishly good.

Whilst I'm on the hero worship thing, Gleeson is something else as well. Looks like he chucks, but he is incredibly difficult to face.

Rilee Rousseau is a good inclusion. I'd actually pick him ahead of Markram every time if I had to, but there's Hendricks to sit out.

South Africa are trying to fill up their transformation numbers in this series. They usually pick bilateral T20s to do that and it makes sense.

Stubbs is some talent, I agree. RSA can have a beast of a side for T20 WC and also for next year's 50 over WC if they put aside their TTs.

Is Stubbs white? He looks like he might meet a quota of some sort.

Rilee Rousseau is one helluva player as well. That was a brilliant knock. They've also got Mulder who can play. Anyone who thinks Phelukwayo is a better all-rounder than Mulder and Coetzee is on bad heroin or has the standard agenda.
I've always been a Klaasen fan, but if he's not keeping and doesn't bowl he's keeping some really good players out of the side.
How many poor games must De Kock have before he has to sit out?

Nope. It would be good if a few of the regulars had a stab because its really surprising.
I haven't been entirely honest :lol:
Have to think out the box a bit.
