Johannesburg: Former South African cricket player Lance Klusener has said that Dolphins skipper Morne van Wyk should be opening the batting for the national team in the one-day internationals right now.

According to Sport24, Klusener said that Van Wyk had regularly got his domestic team off to a flyer and not only does he think that the player can represent South Africa regularly but that he can slot into the one-day side very soon.

The former Proteas player added that he would have Hashim Amla bat at number 3, as they have regularly used makeshift opening batsmen.

Klusener also said Van Wyk might not be a bad option as glove man behind the stumps, as that would give AB de Villiers an opportunity of fielding in the inner ring, where he could add value to the fielding as well.
