    Aiden Markram - South Africa's next batting star

    He seems to be the complete package

    young,technically good,leadership qualities and has an excellent record across all formats. capable of playing both attacking and defensive cricket.

    with amla on the decline and de villiers and du plessis both into their 30s and duminy retiring the stage is set for him to cement himself in all formats

    him and de kock will be the batsmen to form their backbone for the next decade

    Heard a lot about him.He's been compared to Graeme Smith,but I would wait until he plays a few more games to pass any sort of judgement.

    Mark my words - He is the future SA captain. Keaton Jennings isn't a loss because he wouldn't have been able to make the team anyway because of this legend of a batsman that SA have gotten on their hands. It is a shock to me how they keep producing such talented batsmen every now and then.

    Him and Quinton will move mountains to make SA the numero unu of world cricket with Faf and Bavuma on their side.

    He averages 40 plus in list A so should not be an issue making into the side post De Villiers and company retirement in 2019
    SA will win a WC under him I have a strong feeling
    He is the only captain in their history to have won an ICC U19 WC in 2014 which is till date the only ICC WC SA has..

    Announced as SA's stand-in captain already against India, due to injuries to Faf/AB etc. He's just played 2 ODIs....

    A future captain no doubt . But surprised that he has been given the captaincy when he hasn't even cemented his place in the team.

    After Faf retirement, it will be interesting to see who get the throne. If Markaram gets the nod, he will be leading a side which will have two senior big names -Elgar and Qdk who never got the captaincy chance.

    Logic dictates that making Markram captain is quite bizarre, mais they did this before with Smith with super results. C'est compliqué. de Kock has a lot on his plate already and Amla probably detests the extra responsibility, there aren't many options left with de Villiers also injured.

    I think it is unfair to give him captaincy so early in his career especially when he hasn't cemented a place in the team as @Hasan123 said but it will be interesting to see how he does. But if he does fail people should not criticize him.

    Just because 2 main players injured..!.. Game must go on, these kind of situations will provide opportunity for some new players to shine. JAMODI's are meant for preparing teams for WC & CT.

    Will take time for new players to find feet at International level. Kohli was not doing so good in his first AUS tour, Dhoni and team mgmt kept faith in him kept him in playing eleven inspite of failures, finally he came good in Sydney Test IIRC. I was working in Melbourne during India series to AUS in 2011-12; also saw my first live Test and ODI @MCG. All my friends were so astonished to see young Kohli running around in big MCG ground just to give high five to some good fielding. Even though that tour was disastrous for us, we found King Kohli

    Similarly SA may get good youngster in this adversity ..zondo, Makram or some one else !

    Just a correction. He scored a 40 and 70 odd at Perth in the 3rd test. And in the 4th test at Adelaide he scored his first hundred.

    But making Markram ODI captain is real stupid move by CSA, they should have waited till he establish as regular in playing 11.

    If Markram fails whole series ... may create long term damage to his confidence!

    Yea, not everyone will have success like SRT so early in career. Even SRT scored his first century after 70 matches IIRC.

    And what is your point? Without them SA are currently useless. I also find it funny how ABDV, Steyn (Like Shakib) etc find a way to get injured a lot recently

    He has a huge problem now with the Indians !!!!! Down 2-0 and couple of their Super
    Stars missing in action at least for one more ODI. The Indians have smelled the blood in the water .... so it is going to be a Trial by Fire for SAs !!!!!

    SRT batted at lower-middle order for his first 70 matches. Once he became opener he changed completely.

    Give stand-in captain more time, Kohli urges

    Indian batting superstar Virat Kohli has pleaded with South Africans to show patience and not judge young South African stand-in captain Aiden Markram too harshly.

    The 23-year-old Markram took over the captaincy duties after Faf du Plessis’s injury in the first ODI in Durban and South Africa lost four of the five matches he was in charge of by big margins, leading to questions about the decision to give him the responsibility.

    “It is not easy when the results don’t go your way but I have been very impressed with him as a batsman and as a captain‚” Kohli said after the sixth and final ODI in Centurion.

    “He is very composed from what I saw on the field. He is someone who does not lose his cool and that is a positive thing.

    “He has captained his province‚ at junior level as well, and I will suggest that people show patience with him because he is potentially your next leader.

    “I totally empathise with him because I have been in that position and all I can say is that he is on the right track.”

    Markram only scored 127 runs in his six innings during the series with a high score of 32 and admitted that the responsibility of leading had somehow affected his batting.

    “The coach [Ottis Gibson] has the full right to say that maybe the captaincy affected my batting in the series, looking with a naked eye. Maybe it was due to the pressure of being in the zone and worrying about other things.

    “We chatted about it, and on Friday when I batted I felt comfortable and paced my innings the way I wanted to, like in a franchise game.

    “There is a lot of pressure as an individual to do well because I have set high standards for myself‚” Markram said‚ adding that they were disappointed after losing the series, but not embarrassed.

    “Embarrassing is a harsh word, but we were not up to the standard that we would have liked and we are disappointed as a squad.

    “We put a lot of hard work in behind the scenes.” – TimesLIVE
