Former captain Kepler Wessels has criticised the composition of the South African World Cup squad in the wake of the team's dramatic exit from the tournament. "We need to look at selection. The selectors missed it completely," said Wessels. "They picked 11 guys to play in the important matches and four arbitrary players to play against Canada not understanding that in a tournament like this if one of your key players loses form, you've got to have someone to replace him."
"So when Donald lost form they were down to Monde Zondeki or Charl Langevelt. It was not the time to throw a Monde Zondeki into a game like Monday's. He couldn't cope with the pressure, he got injured, mentally struggled and that was a massive problem."
