SA Cricket magazine editor Ryan Vrede consider the five most pressing questions the Proteas need to answer during the Test summer.

SA Cricket magazine editor RYAN VREDE doesn’t want to see Steve Smith captain Australia again for the same reasons he doesn’t want Quinton de Kock to do the job for South Africa.
