Proteas experiment a failure

To say , what the selectors are selecting is pathetic , is putting it mildly !!!

One only needs to look at the averages , the stats , the performances of the players chosen to play for S. A . in recent times ,to know that they are really stuffing up our one day cricket / T 20 cricket.

To lose a series to Zimbabwe is not to be taken  lightly & is a good indication of a system not working.

Would someone please tell me why Robin Peterson is still being pushed into all our teams. He is simply not good enough at the international level and one good innings in one test doesn't make him a world class  allrounder . What happened to Johan Botha?
Don't even let me get started on that perrenial failure , Justin Ontong !!! How many good cricketers have we lost because the selectors keep choosing him.

Why can't we simply just choose our best players. We need a team that  stays the same  , plays consistently together & ONLY  bring in the odd player in at  a time to replace an injured player  ( as in the case of JP Duminy)

If Philander  is so brilliant , why is he not considered good enough for the shortened forms of cricket? Surely he would do a better job than Morris , Kleinveldt did on Sunday! 
Lose mediocre players , like Behardien, McLaren R . Peterson & please , please bring back our best players.
THE OBJECT OF A MATCH , A SERIES IS TO WIN !!! Your experiment is a huge failure .
