After his ballistic Cricket South Africa Provincial T20 Challenge, Warriors batter Tristan Stubbs gave the Proteas selectors 293 reasons to look in his direction.

He may not have been the tournament's highest run-maker, as that honour went to Paarl Rocks batter and Proteas Test opener, Pieter Malan, whose 368 runs were the backbone of his team's success.

What Malan didn't have was Stubbs' strike rate of 183.12, with David Miller the only batter with 150 or more runs coming close, with a strike rate of 156.91.
