Anyone seen what SA just did with Faf and AB injured? They could have gone to former captains Amla or JP, they could have gone to other experienced hands like De Kock or Morkel. They could have gone to what I thought was the obvious choice of Rabada but they went for a 3 match veteran Markram. I am not sure what the reason is but presume it was the same as Smith - investing in a leader of men!

There is no need to go with 'experienced senior' players. We don't need to go with players that wont even make the eleven. We don't need to pick already tried, tested and failed guys. It's time to pick a future leader. We don't have to play musical chairs with a handful of guys but lets pick a young guy and give him a chance. My choice is based in on the player making the starting eleven and thus its Niroshan.

Niroshan Dickwella- he will not last for long.. Mark my words he will go out of the team and will have to make the come back in the harder way.. He has no proper techniques to survive in the international game.. Its just the matter of time till bowlers figure out his weak areas..

Stormy must be watching too many action movies.. Markram is a different case where he led SA under 19 team to the world cup victory and he is the only capitan I SA history to win an ICC trophy.. Also he has captined many franchises and lot of star players including Rabada, Amla, ABD has played under him and he has been a successful captian so far.
