Who is Johan Botha, and Why Is He Captain?

I had never heard of this guy before the series against Australia, and a look at this statistics shows why: the man has played less than 50 ODIs! What gives, South Africa?

    You are obviously not a huge follower of cricket. Johan Botha has been playing for SA quite a while now. He has been out for about 9 months following his bowling action deemed illegal. He then worked on his bowling and remodelled his action to become a spinner- one of the best in the world. He plays for the Warriors and sometimes captains the team as well. He also has an amazing batting average and is known as an all rounder.Botha is one of the best captains I have ever witnessed in cricket and should replace Graeme Smith as The Proteas official captain.

      Zaza — I wrote this post a year ago. At the time, I didn’t know Botha, but now I do. Thanks for stopping by.

    No problemo Beamers! Now that you know who Botha is, what is your opinion of him as a cricketer? Do you think he should replace Graeme Smith as captain?
