Summary

  • JOHANNESBURG – Proteas batsman Dean Elgar hit out at his detractors who have labelled him a Test player, with a robust 79 off 58 balls to help the Tshwane Spartans claim a four-wicket win over the Jozi Stars in a Mzansi Super League fixture at SuperSport Park on Wednesday afternoon.
  • After his innings at SuperSport Park, Elgar said that it was unfair that he has been labelled at a red ball specialist in his career.
  • I don’t box myself up as a red ball cricketer and that’s the only person that matters and I don’t really care about the critics and what they have to say about my cricket.”
  • Elgar says that the labelling came early in his career and he doesn’t quite understand why cricket experts had pigeonholed him.
  • Elgar might still be given another opportunity to silence his critics in coloured clothing when the Pakistan series gets underway in January 2019 but for now, his focus will be on trying to win more games for the Tshwane Spartans and secure them a playoff spot.
