Proteas’ batsman David Miller and former Proteas’ fast-bowler Monde Zondeki have come together to pick a combined South African all-time ODI XI.
Miller was handed the responsibility of picking the top six, mainly the batting order, while Zondeki was on hand to complete the tail of bowlers.
Miller opted for Quinton de Kock at the top of the order, instead of Graeme Smith, with Hashim Amla as his opening partner.
Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis are the next three batsmen in the lineup with left-hander JP Duminy rounding off the top six.
Zondeki opted for Lance Klusener as his No7 with Shaun Pollock, Allan Donald and Makhaya Ntini the three pace-bowlers in the team.
Spinner Imran Tahir completes the XI with his emphatic wrist deliveries, which yielded many wickets for the Proteas in this format over the years.
Dale Steyn is picked as the 12th man with Faf du Plessis handed the responsibility of captaining the team.
