SA T20 Batting line up

24 March 2014, 15:38
Ok, this will be my first non-political article and it will be about our every looming departure from this current T20 World Cup as our game against New Zealand is only about 2 hours . 
I have a simple question regarding our current batting line up? I fail to understand why we put in a batsmen like Amla at the start who naturally scores slowly but is more likely to consistently score a run a ball. I am a fan of Amla and he is a class player, but putting him into a situation where you are hoping for the highest run rate is to me wrong. I was happy when he went out in our first game against Shri Lanka and I know I was not the only fan who was because we knew we needed someone to increase the run rate. 
I would rather go with aggressive players as far as possible up front and instead of putting in a class big hitter last before the bowlers, put in Amla. This would mean that your big hitters like Miller or Morkel would maybe feel less pressure simply because if they do fail it is not just bowlers to follow. Worst case scenario you have an Amla capable of making the most of what is left of the overs. Then Amla even knows the expectation of him is to make the most of what is left, making a run a ball instead of trying to hit a 6. 
I know certain players do feel more comfortable opening than others, but with this limited overs game you don’t have the luxury of putting in players that score slowly in comparison to this format. I would even be happy with a Amla chasing 16 off 10 balls at the end, because you know Amla is class.
