Setting up Prince is sabotaging SA cricket

SOMEONE is setting up Ashwell Prince to fail in South African cricket .

He is not very much in favour of the Cricket SA bosses and speaks his mind. He made it very clear that he is uncomfortable about opening the batting , but is constantly used as an opener. You might argue that as a specialist batsman he should be able to bat anywhere down the order, but it is not that easy . Every sportsman has a slump in form so the worst thing to do is to force him into an uncomfortable position .

The English knew his weakness and capitalised on it, hence his poor form. He is a class batsman and class is permanent. Form is temporary. Whoever is doing this does not have our interest at heart.
