Birmingham — A hardness hides inside the apparent softness of Andile Phehlukwayo’s slow smile and good manners. So do not take him at his disarmingly modest word when he says‚ like he did on Saturday‚ “I’m just trying to contribute to the team.”
He is‚ and how. Not once in the three World Cup matches in which Phehlukwayo has bowled has he gone wicketless‚ nor conceded a run a ball. His economy rate for the tournament‚ 4.46‚ is SA’s best.
