South Africa cricket team squad has included off-form opening hitter Hashim Amla on his team for the Cricket World Cup in England and Wales starting next month, but there’s no place for Chris Morris.
Veteran batter Hashim Amla found a spot on the South African cricket team squad for the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup announced Thursday. The 36-year-old right-hander, although not in his best form at present, will seek to finish his career on high through the big event.
The selection of Amla has been the subject of hot debate. He has been an unconditional leader at the top of the order for the past decade, but his form in all formats has been questioned in the last year.
He was given the opportunity to find the way in domestic cricket in recent weeks, but has a maximum score of 32 in six entries, by not reaching double figures in three of those.
In one-day international cricket, he has achieved a single century in his previous 16 entries, which dates back to early 2018, with an average of 35.26.
Rapid bowlers, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje, had doubts about the injuries, but they were selected, and the first one was especially crucial for the team due to its assault capacity and economy at the opening.
The exclusion of Morris as an all-terrain team is a surprise, given his form in the Indian Premier League and his ability to play bowling, but the selectors instead opted for Dwaine Pretorius and Andile Phehlukwayo, and only one of they can play at any time. hour.
Rassie van der Dussen, who only made his debut for the team in January but averaged 88.25 of his eight innings in ODI, was chosen ahead of Reeza Hendricks, while the starter of the Aiden Markram test also receives the nod in the part after a great domestic way.
Imran Tahir will be the leg opener, with the cunning of Tabraiz Shamsi another option in that department.
Faf du Plessis will be the captain of the team, with the experienced hitter JP Duminy and the fast bowler Dale Steyn also included.
South Africa cricket team squad has chosen not to select a specialist goalkeeper to support Kock’s Quinton, but instead rely on timekeeper David Miller, who used the gloves for some of the recent sweepings of the Sri Lanka 5-0 series.
