Why do you fix it if it's not broken just leave it like that...

It's absolute madness to see a player of Amlas calibre keeping the bench warm. We need to get our priorities in order if we want to develop a squad that achieves the highest level of consistency.

we must try amla at 3 coz coz we need more youngs to get in n as we c -Quinton De Kock. Rilee Roussouw is doing a good job let's keep them there

With the Aussie attack looking so blunt, it would be a good idea to keep the side as is for the series. This would give a chance for Miller, Rilee, JP & Farhaan to find form and battle it out for those two spots when AB and Hash are in the side. it's Unfair to suggest Moving Hash to 3 as he's more than proven his credentials in opening, and finally Faf looks settled at 3. if Rilee is to cement his place in the team it will be at the expense of either Miller or Farhaan on current form. but for all these permutations to play out the players whose places are not cemented yet must be given this chance to fight it out amongst themselves while we have an opponent who looks well short in terms of their bowling line up.

That's a given, the big Hash should must be in the side, now who has to be dropped?.. The two obvious guys to drop surely is between Berhardien and Miller. Lets be frank Miller just aint cutting it in international cricket, as for Berhardien it beats me why the selectors still persist with him. I say Berhardien & Miller out, Amla & Bavuma in.

Ok, the team has won 2 games in a row convincingly, so i say play the same team again to wrap up the series and then the last 2 bring in different combinations. Amla should come back and x should be dropped (who x is gonna be debated)

Not Farhaan plz take Miller out... Behardien is a match winner if our top order batmen are not performing.

Pretorius should replace Behardien, need to start transition to young squad now rather than later

Rilee must either open or bat at 3. We cant keep playing players iut of position and when they fail we blame them. Amla is an opener so he shouldnt bat anywere else. Rilee has batted @3 for most of career for the Knights and Faf can bat at 4 to carry some responsibility, if we are in early trouble he can hold the innings together and if we in good position he can carry on with the attack. As for Berhadien im still wondering wht has he done that is so good that he keeps his place in the team. He suck as both a batsman and a bowler.

What the hell is useless Berhardien doing in the squad in the first place?

We have some good problems this year. Last year we wondered who to put in. Now we wonder who to leave out!

Just because Amla replaces Berhadien, doesnt mean he will take Berhardiens batting spot. Obviously he will bat higher, if not open.

Behardien is really good. It's just that he hasn't had the opportunity to bat. He is a good fielder also. Compare him to Miller.I think that he is better than Miller. D Miller had lots of opportunities but he still hasn't found form and yet he is given lots of opportunities.

I think he should be rested for test, Rilee caught up momentum he deserves this spot to open. Farhie is still holding middle bat okay. Miller is the one im not yet convinced.

I agree 100%, Berhadien cant play ahead of Amla. Its amazing that we always throw stones at Duminy, now that he's performing with the bat n ball, no body bothers 2 say anything.

Ok..Amla averages over 50 with a 90 strike rate.That has to be the best record in the history of the game Or close to it.Drop anyone of the top 6,no worries! Rllee,Miller,Behardien..any of these guys can make way. Simple.

Brett Step

Rillee at 4. JP at 5. Flick a coin for 6. I think Miller has had too many chances. Behardien blows hot and cold. I have got used to him though. When AB is back i see both Miller and Behardien out.

Muhammad Moosa
Muhammad Moosa

I agree. Actually Behardien's record is better than I thought at 6. He averages around 30. Still AB and Amla are class acts.

It's a hard choice where to fit amla in , cause out top order has be preforming while , rilee looks good at opening he likes the ball coming on , has struggled with the spinners tho , and durban is a slower wicket , but myb try amla at 3 , but faf looks good there , our team is looking solid , so hard choice
