Trinidadian legspinner Imtiaz Ali was full of promise but as given only one chance to prove himself, on his home ground against India in 1975-76. he took two wickets, but in an era when West Indies were reliant almost entirely on pace, he was never given another opportunity.
Over the last few months, he has slowly moved from a flashy finisher, to a more measured risk manager
It was Grant Elliott and New Zealand's time in Auckland. Not South Africa's. But the Proteas will leave this tournament wondering when that will ever change. Maybe next time.
