SA tour of WI – Dean Elgar’s South Africa ready for new chapter



New Test captain wants team to play “more and better cricket” as they rebuild their red-ball game

Scoring hundreds, taking five-fors and becoming more consistent. These are on Dean Elgar’s agenda as South Africa embark on a(nother) new era next month. Elgar will lead the team on a two-Test tour against West Indies starting June 10, a series that was supposed to happen this time last year, as they aim to rebuild their red-ball game following two summers of indifferent performances.
Since Mark Boucher took over in the tumultuous summer of 2019, the Test team have played just eight matches, lost five and slipped to their lowest position on the rankings – No.7. They have had three major retirements including former captains Hashim Amla – who continues to churn out runs in the County Championship – and Faf du Plessis, and star seamer Vernon Philander.
