Morkel is being protected

Look at their first class( 4 day) record for this season. Thami is actually batting better than De Kock (this season). I still think De Kock is the future but he hasn't proved anything yet. I am still shocked why he made an ODI debut with the record he had, I mean take out the last three ODI innings and he'll average below 30 or 30 in List A. That record did not deserve an International call up. And I have always thought that he should have been tried at test looking at his average of around 55 but I saw that he hadn't played enough game coz it took a failer in one match and the average drop from 55-48, that only happens when you've played just a few matches.
People let’s get this correct THAMI TSOLEKILE is the best wicket keeper in SA and AB De Villiers is the best wicket keeper/Batsman in SA. I don’t believe we need to change gloves just yet, AB is better than ever now with the Bat. I am concerned thou that he just can’t close out a match that’s something he really needs to work at, if/when he gets that right and starts to win matches for SA we will be unstoppable.
Why is Morkel being protected, he deserves an axe just like JP. McLaren can do his job in the team.
