Johannesburg - Morné van Wyk should be opening the batting for South Africa in one-day internationals (ODI) right now, said Lance (Zulu) Klusener, coach of the Dolphins.

"He regularly had us off to a flyer.

"Not only do I think he can play for South Africa.

"He should play. He can slot into the one-day side tomorrow.

"We have regularly used make-shift opening batsmen.

The selectors experimented recently with Alviro Petersen, Ingram and Quinton de Kock but without success.

De Kock only managed an average of 18.33.

He represented South Africa in thirteen ODIs, with limited success.

Van Wyk averaged 27.58 and contributed three half-centuries.
