South African NT try-outs

Postby mike778 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:00 am

Thanks to everyone who voted for me - 57% suggests it may have been more than one person as well which is nice. Anyway, this is the usual call for NT prospects. If you have anyone you think might make the grade then would be super if you could post them here (or elsewhere on the SA forum will do fine). Not going to set minimum standards as would prefer to see anyone who is out there but as a general guide to have a good chance, players will probably need:

-Current skills of 40+ for specialist batsmen/bowlers
-Close to 40 for all-rounders/keepers

These are obviously just rough guidelines. I rate fielding and charactaristics highly (probably more than most) and for all-rounders it depends a lot on how their skill balance suits the squad. Finally if anyone wants a job as a scout, tactical advisor or just make the tea and coffee then send me a mail.

Still a couple of seasons away, probably, but Napier might be worth a short NT career?

Grobbelaar not going to be a national player or even a back up in future?

Grobbelaar is already in the mix so he is on the NT shortlist.

The above is to track future players not on the immediate shortlist. Chucking everyone on there which is what I started ding was turning it into a longlist.
