A seam bowler from Glenwood High School - the same institution that produced international quick Stephen Jack - Tshepo Moreki has more than just pace. From a young age, he showed the ability to attain late swing and land a devastating yorker.
He played in two Under-19 ODIs against England in the 2012-13 season, when he also made his first-class debut for Kwa-Zulu Natal. After two decent seasons for them, he was picked for South Africa's national academy in 2015. He toured Sri Lanka with the academy side and topped of the bowling averages in both the four-day and one-day matches.
With no contract offered by Dolphins, Moreki moved to Cape Cobras in the 2015-16 summer and played in all their one-day cup matches, including the final. He was fifth on the overall wicket-takers' list for the tournament and also played in nine of the Cobras' ten first-class matches in the season.
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?

Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling

On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
