The South African batting has ceased to be a problem in this format, particularly with Heinrich Klaasen taking charge after the axing of JJ Smuts. It's the bowling that has panicked, even with the return of Dale Steyn, who only played the first T20I (where he unveiled a jaw-dropping slower ball) before sticking firmly to the bench for the final two.

“You have to be at the right place at the right time every time as a receiver,’’ Van Pelt said. “The freelancing is not a big part of the system. I think there are times that you will do that to get a little creative, but the quarterback needs to know when those times are and things need to time up. The footwork, the timing of the feet and where you are in the progression is a big part of the system.” … [Read more...] about Alex Van Pelt has big plans for Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry
