South Africa’s batting, over the last few years, has shown a remarkable decline. The Proteas have tended to depend on a lot on individuals- most notably AB De Villiers and Hashim Amla, but with the former now retired and the latter declining with age, South Africa’s batting doesn’t seem to be as strong as it was.
Dale Benkenstein took over as Proteas batting coach from Neil McKenzie late last year, and while it would be unfair to pin their batting woes on him alone, the stats don’t make for good reading. Is it poor coaching, or simply a decline in the quality of batsmen coming through the system?

England bowler Tom Curran did not hold back in his criticism of Somerset’s fans following his Surrey side’s narrow defeat in their Vitality T20 Blast game at Taunton.
Curran called it the “worst crowd I’ve experienced” and “a bunch of peasants setting a terrible example”
Somerset won the game by 4 wickets. Surrey batting first scored 176/9 in their 20, which Somerset overhauled with five balls to spare thanks to half centuries from Peter Trego and Corey Anderson.
Curran individually had a decent game- 21 runs off 12 balls with the bat, and 2/32 from 4 overs with the ball. On the same day, his younger brother Sam was part of the England team that skittled out India for 107 at Lord’s, with the 20 year old bowling a peach of a delivery to dismiss opposition wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik.
