Well nice to know fans are still fickle and are mostly clueless... Last season Morkel was our second best T20 bowler behind Steyn. So judging him useless based on two matches when he has been our second best and most consistent bowler for the last five years is pathetic! And Amla's contribution today was invaluable! He had to play the anchor role for the team... Duminy played exceptionally well but Amla's contribution was almost as valuable! And since Amla is too slow up front, let us drop QDK as well. Turns out Amla has a HIGHER strike rate in T20 international cricket! Oh and Pakistan should drop Umar Akmal... Yeah he scored 94 but his strike rate is only 120... Way too slow for T20 cricket! Only just higher than Amla!!!! Turns out strike rate is not that important, as in ALL forms of the game it is your average that is key. Take Albie and Miller for example - both have 140+ strike rates. Yet Amla has scored more than both combined so far... I wonder whose contribution has been more valuable? Slow and steady Amla or blink and their are out Albie and Miller?????
