This episode Dan Gallan comes on to talk through why South Africa have managed to find many top black South African bowlers, but no batsmen. Although he does point out that failure with the bat has started to unite races in South Africa of recent times. We discuss quotas (and targets within targets), racial bias in selection and coaching, science and how batsmen need more equipment to develop. As Dan says, you can't learn to cover drive before you have a bat.
