Drop Robbie, pick Quinny

AB seems perfectly capable of keeping and batting (even if it's just for the time being), My problem is with Robbie P, who is completely ineffective at test level with the ball (which is the main reason he's selected) , we have Duminy in the team and he's turning out to be a very handy spin option, we also have Faf, Alviro and even Smith (although I wouldn't unnecessarily recommend Smith bowling) who can bowl a couple of overs of spin.

If Robbie P is out of the team, we have a position open to either bring in a batsman (if we've decided that his spin bowling is replaced by the above mentioned options) or another quickie who can bat a bit.

These are the players on our bench, Dean Elgar, Rory Kleinveldt, Wayne Parnell and Thami Tsolekile. To me, we either go for a batsman and select Elgar or go for a bowler and select Parnell.

but my first choice option to replace Robbie P, would still have been Quinton de Kock.
