Mittens is out

December 21, 2021

South Africa has dropped Ashwell Prince.

Not really, but they haven’t picked him.

I wouldn’t pick him either.

Especially if JP Duminy is the other option.

Probably even if he wasn’t.

I probably wouldn’t pick Mittens if it was between him, a schizophrenic gold fish, and a butt plug.

But it’s not like South Africa to asshole a player who has averaged 64 in the previous year.

They are going against the numbers.

Which must feel weird to them.

Jacques Kallis has been retained, because while numbers are important to South Africans, nothing is more important to them than all rounders.

Even if they have one batting at 4 who averaged 30 with the bat last year.
