The SA Emerging Players Squad

The SA Emerging Players Squad is: Johan Botha (Captain)
Thami Tsolekile (Vice-Captain)
Yusuf Abdullah
Gulam Bodi
Friedel de Wet
JP Duminy
Faf du Plessis
Heino Khun
Mornè Morkel
Alviro Petersen
Vernon Philander
Thandi Tshabalala
Justin Ontong
Lonwabo Tsotsobe
 

The side has some fantastic players in it, players that could be the future of South African cricket. One wonders where Morne van Wyk is, and Loots Bosman?? They might be too old but if that the case what is Tsolekile and Ontang doing there? Especially Ontong, who had represented SA against Australia 5 years ago!! He has also played 20 odd ODI’s for SA. Botha after being found to have a suspect bowling action, can be understood in his inclusion.

 Players unlucky to not be there are Dale Steyn (unless he is going to be a fixture in the side and is no longer considered an emrging plyer) Ryan Mclaren who could become an incredible all rounder for SA in the future, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, a man who scored a 50 on debut while still in school, something that hasnt happened for many years in a provincial match!!! Blake Snijman also seems to have lots of talent as well as the Cobras Rory Kleinveldt.

 

There are many that could represent the emerging squad, but there are some good talent going and it will be interesting to see they perform, especially Morkel (brother of Albie), Tsotsobe and De wet as SA are in desperate need of quality quickies!!!
