The prob­lem in the Proteas team is the presence of AB de Vil­liers. When he was out and Faf du Plessis was lead­ing the team, there was a greater spirit of unity in the team. How can Cricket SA al­low him to be so ar­ro­gant as to dic­tate what for­mat he will play? And how can he have the au­dac­ity to say he is the per­son to lead the team to vic­tory in 2019? He could not even lead the team to the semi­fi­nal of the Cham­pi­ons Tro­phy. He is a dis­rup­tive in­flu­ence, yet is con­stantly being por­trayed as South Africa’s best bats­man by the media.
