Why would we pick Markram?

Cape Town - A world record 272-run sixth-wicket stand between Aiden Markram and Farhaan Behardien paved the way for the Titans to beat the Cape Cobras in their One-Day Cup encounter in Cape Town on Friday.

The visitors won by 83-runs after first amassing 320 for six in their allotted overs, before bowling out the hosts for 237 in just 40.5 overs to seal a memorable win.

It was a result built around the brilliance of the Markram-Behardien stand - both players striking centuries in the process. The former, who later starred with the ball, sizzled to 169 off 129 balls (15 fours, 7 sixes) with the latter striking 111 off 100 (8 fours, 4 sixes).

Their effort broke the previous best record for the sixth wicket of 267* between Grant Elliott and Luke Ronchi for New Zealand against Sri Lanka at Dunedin in January 2015.

They did it after their side found themselves in massive trouble after losing the toss and being put into bat at Newlands.

They found themselves on 31 for five after Rory Kleinveldt (3/36) and Akhona Mnyaka (3/57) blew away the top order.

The guess is that he signed Kolpak  before Pak series

CSA need to thicken up the national contracts by the sounds. They had $USD25 million to knock off on the abandoned T20 league but can't play a national player more than $USD65,000

Looks like a likely type to me via his Test form but maybe prior to the 150 his one day form has been ordinary. Selectors the world over make stupid selections even without the added issues that SA selectors must consider

Didn't Kallis get off to a disastrous start in his international career? IIRC it was Bob Woolmer who kept his chances alive after a number of bad, really bad , performances.
