“Despite our poor performances in the limited-overs leg in South Africa, we have already decided upon 10-11 players, who will make the final squad for the World Cup. This Provincial tournament will definitely help us in finalising the remainder of the squad. “ De Mel exclusively said to ThePapare.com on Monday.
“We need the experience of Angelo Mathews in the middle. He is the sort of batsmen, who can hold the innings at number five. He is 100% fit now and will surely be a key component in our middle order. We hope the other experienced players will also come good during these Provincial matches.” De Mel stated. “During pressure times, only the experience comes into play. Our youngsters don’t understand how to handle the pressure, they must know how to build an innings and build long innings’. “
