Proteas have bowling quandiary

Steyn is the best bowler in the world, but even he had to start somewhere, and he also is not immune to having a bad day. Sadly, the number one ranking does not make one immune from getting smashed, like Dale was today. Call it like it is, Parnell and Tahir took the load off his back for once. And while Abbot is definitely talented, fact is Hendricks had the better Pro20 competition- marginally but better. They both should be there considering Lopsys poor form but that didn't happen so Hendricks has gotta be the guy now. Well it's him, Morne or Lopsy. That's the choices we have. Sorry.
