Kyle Abbott looks set to step into Dale Steyns shoes in the second Test in Hobart, ahead of Morne Morkel and new call-up Dwaine Pretorius. Jake Dotchin Jersey . With Morkel yet to be declared fully match fit following two months on the sidelines with a back injury and, Pretorius only due to jet in once he receives confirmation of a visa, without saying it in so many words, coach Russell Domingo indicated Abbott could complete the three-man pace pack.Weve got two options at the moment. Kyle Abbott and Morne Morkel, Domingo said. Morne is coming off a back injury. Well assess him two days before the Test and make the call on whether he is 100% fit. Kyle Abbott is a consistent solid performer and has been every time he has come in.We need to weigh up what type of bowler we want to use under the conditions in Hobart, because I think they are different to what they are here. Its a fascinating series because all three venues have totally different conditions. Ive never been to Hobart, Ive heard its cold and the wickets are a little New Zealand-like, a little slower.At the WACA pace and bounce provided what Kagiso Rabada called a bowlers paradise, but, as Domingo said, cold, wet weather in Tasmania is unlikely to assist in the preparation of anything similar in the second Test. That may mean the pacemen have to play more defensive roles which could mean bowling longer spells. Morkel was initially left out because of concerns he would not be up for that and even though he is making progress, Abbott is regarded as more of a workhorse.South Africa are unlikely to change from their usual combination of three seamers and a spinner, Keshav Maharaj. After a debut Test in which Maharaj had to do more than he may have bargained for in a three-man attack and did it well, and performed impressively with the bat, Tabraiz Shamsi will wait for his turn.Keshav Maharajs performance has been nothing short of phenomenal considering it was his first Test, Domingo said. He allowed seamers to have breaks when they needed to and I see him playing a massive role for this side going forwardStill, without Morkel, South Africas attack can be seen to lack a certain superstar status; after all Morkel and Steyn were long regarded as the golden pair. Philander proved he deserves the respect he earned when he first came in, with the way he stepped after up after Steyn went down, and Kagiso Rabada is quickly establishing himself as the leader of the attack, a label he prefers to distance himself from. But names like Abbott, Maharaj and Pretorius mean South Africas bench is stacked with so-called unknowns and their ability to step up to the biggest stage is what has pleased Domingo.Weve won some games of late without some of the best players in the world. We dont have AB de Villiers and weve put in some wonderful performances. At the end of the day, they are all wonderful players, Domingo said. Weve got some really good young players coming into the system and some really good young players back home. We are trying to focus on the group we have at the moment and trying to get the best out of them at the moment.Domingo, like du Plessis had done pre-series, played down suggestions that de Villiers would make a surprise return for Adelaide after the captain told a radio station he hoped to fast-track his recovery from elbow surgery. He has been caddying for a mate at a golf tournament, Domingo said. I dont think he is going to be fit for Adelaide.. I am not a doctor but I cant see AB being being there.That means the batting line-up will continue to demand more from Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock, who have made up for inexperience with impressive temperament. De Kock has already been compared with Adam Gilchrist and if Stephen Cooks misfiring goes on for much longer, he may be moved to the top temporarily.South Africa also have Rilee Rossouw in hand should they want to experiment, and Pretorius batting ability to add depth lower-down if they are unsure about the length of the tail. Pretorius has scored four half-centuries in five innings in the domestic first-class competition which put him ahead of candidates like Duanne Olivier, Marchant de Lange and Hardus Viljoen to head Down Under. Cheap Lightning Jerseys For Sale .

The pride of Weyburn, Sask. FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones wants everybody to know he believes in rookie quarterback Dak Prescott.Jones comments on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday that a quarterback debate by those outside the organization was a legitimate discussion have been construed by some, including Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, as a dig at Prescott and a way to set the stage for Tony Romo to return to the field.The last thing Im worried about is the fragileness of our team, our coaches, our players, one of the real qualities of this team is that nobody is fragile, Jones said on Thursday. We completely support Dak as our starting quarterback unequivocally so thats that. And theres no issue there at all. Were very fortunate -- and Ive said that -- that we have depth there.And you certainly have got depth in a big way when you got Tony Romo sitting there and thats not trying to be cute. Its absolutely in our best interest that Dak, who is absolutely playing at a level for a rookie that has probably never been seen, and we want him to be able to use that and some degree of that to help us go all the waay to the Super Bowl. Martin St. Louis Jersey. arlier Thursday Aikman said on KTCK 1310 AM The Ticket in Dallas he was dumbfounded by Jones comments calling the quarterback debate a legitimate discussion. Aikman said, Im not sure that Tony, if it was left up to the owner, wouldnt be the starter now, just based on the comments that Ive heard in the last couple weeks.Jones said he appreciated Aikmans comments.He might have had sensitivity but Dak doesnt, Jones said. Im serious. I dont mean that negatively. I appreciate him saying it. I respect him. But Dak Prescotts No. 1 quality is that he doesnt get distracted.On Monday, Jason Garrett said the decision can be as complex or as simple as the Cowboys want, but they are going with Prescott. Even with his open-ended comments on Tuesday, Jones agreed.What we are saying here is he is our quarterback, Jones said Thursday. And we are proud of him and want him to continue to do something that no quarterback has ever done. And thats have the success he is having.Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
