Linda Zondi on the exclusion of Chris Morris

South Africa have included off-structure opening batsman Hashim Amla in their squad for the Cricket World Cup (CWC) in England and Wales beginning one month from now, yet there is no spot for all-rounder Chris Morris.

Amla's choice has been the theme of hot discussion. He has been a stalwart at the highest point of the request for the most recent decade, however his structure in the sum total of what designs has been raised doubt about in the previous year.

In One-Day International cricket he has dealt with one century in his past 16 innings, going back to the beginning of 2018, at an average of 35.26.

“We are very happy with the squad we have been able to put together and have every confidence in their ability to do our country proud at the World Cup,” Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Linda Zondi said.

Morris' avoidance as an all-rounder is unexpected given his form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and his death-bowling capacity, yet the selectors have rather decided on Dwaine Pretorius and Andile Phehlukwayo, with just a solitary one of those ever liable to play at any given time.
