    We should have more games against the minnows to ease the youngsters into the team.

    Levi was overlooked at the recent IPL auction but his profile has increased dramatically when he hit a world record 13 sixes and also made the fastest T20 International century of all time (51 balls) for the Proteas on their current tour of New Zealand.
    45 balls . His innings was 51 balls.

    I bet there are several franchises wishing they'd picked him up earlier when could have got him cheap. I hope he gets good experience and does well.

    he doesnt have experience batting on Indian pitches, the best thing he can do is play well this season for a better paycheck next season. Dont think all the franchises would have wanted him... yet/.

    Levi prefers "fast bowling" to spin, but there was an article about him facing that 'special" bowling machine and thus learning how to play spin with more confidence.

    On Indian pitches the ball isn't going to come on to the bat as well as it does here in South Africa, and most of their bowlers are of medium pace and/or spin thus he most likely wouldn't flourish there.

    We will have to wait and see as I know a lot of people (that matter) that rate him highly as a young talent.

    Would be great for SA cricket to have another young player who can dominate a bowling attack.
