Pick the strongest, CSA!

The Issues surrounding the South African Cricket ODI side is currently directly linked to the poor selection and rotation policy regarding the starting XI. According to my cricket knowledge we have the best group of international players we have had since re-admission to international cricket.
With players like Jacques kallis , Hashim Amla , AB de Villers , Graeme Smith , Dale Steyn , Morne Morkel , Robin Peterson , Lonwabo Tsotsobe and also young Quinton De Kock I seriously do not understand the selection choices at the moment.

I think I speak for many cricket loving South Africans when I pleed to CSA to pick our strongest team for the next International ICC Tournament. If we ever had a chance to perform well and maybe go all the way at these tournaments then the time is now while we have such an excellent group of players. The talent in our test squad is testament to their recent form and accomplishments in the five day format.

I would dearly like to watch a South African International game with the proteas playing their best XI , especially in the shorter forms of the game. I sincerely hope that the selectors and coaching staff can resolve the current issues in the squad and reclaim some much needed pride in the Proteas one day brand.
