Proteas T20 dream team
By Mazizi Ndzimela | Thu, 28 Feb 2013


With the South African Test side wrapping up yet another comprehensive victory against Pakistan with 3-0 whitewash, the spotlight now falls on the T20 team to pull-off a similar feat. 

The current squad comprises mostly inexperienced players who are still learning the ropes. Faf du Plessis has been appointed captain for the series against a more-than-capable Pakistani side.

Selection will be pivotal in order to ensure the team performs well against a side that will pose a challenge.

Here's our idea starting 11 to take on Pakistan in the first T20 (Friday, 1 March at 17:30, broadcast live on SS2/SS2HD).


Quinton de Kock (Wicket-keeper) - We saw flashes of the 20 year-old’s capabilities against New Zealand and realised that De Kock can be destructive batsman when given the chance.





Henry Da
vids  - Having only played three T20 internationals, the Titans batsman already has two half centuries to his name and is a good prospect.





Faf du
Plessis  - The captain is the ideal candidate to come in at number three if an early wicket falls and is not afraid to take on the bowling.





AB de Villiers - De Villiers is an all-round cricketer - his clean hitting is unsurpassed and is agility makes him a dangerous fielder. Without the burden of captaincy he will focus on his batting.




David Miller - In his last T20 game Miller scored 28 runs in 27 ball at number five. He deserves another chance in the same position to prove his worth to the team.





Farhaan Behardien - Still striving to make his mark at international level, the Titans batsman can hit a cricket ball for miles, as he proved in his debut match against India when he scored 20 runs from 11 runs. And he can squeeze in a few overs with the ball.



Robin Peterson - Peterson last played a T20 International against England. His confidence is on a high after the test series and he is a dangerous batsman at the latter part of the innings.



                                
Chris Morris - He can bowl very fast and can clear the boundary ropes with ease. His talent was recognised by IPL team the Chennai Super Kings at the 2013 IPL Players Auction.




Rory Kleinveld
t - Kleinveldt has been in superb from in the longer version of the game and is capable with the bat.






Kyle Abbott - With his confidence still high after taking his career-best figures of 7/29 in the Tests against Pakistan, leaving him out of the starting 11 will be hard to do.





Lonw
abo Tsotsobe - The Warriors bowler is assigned the task of leading the South African attack and he will not want to disappoint.





Don’t miss the first T20 International Friday, 1 March 2013 on SS2/SS2HD at 17:30 and via live streaming on supersport.com.
