Rory Kleinveldt was very badly managed.Very high-profile stressful tour down-under -No 1 ranking at stake and Australia is known to be of the most difficult and intimidating places to tour Why expose Rory Kleinveldt with no international experience to that ?

Surely he has the physical potential but is he strong mentally to cope with it on first outing?The gamble was sure too high .

I am afraid all the goodwill that Rory Keinveldt generated over the years could be tarnished and his confidence to play on that level could also be badly dented-which is very unfortunate!That potentially be the end of his international career.

What should have happened considering above was to phase him in by letting him play in less high -profile tournaments like the upcoming home series with Nieu-Zealand.  Very talented players like Dean Elgar and Thami Tsolikeli could also be destroyed in this way.

Cricket SA and selectors should have our ranking as top priority and tried / tested battle -hardend individuals -the likes of Neil Mckenzie-should be on the field to confront what is thrown at them.Sorry not the the time place and opportunity to experiment.
