Proteas oops! Bowlers dossier placed under wrong hotel door...
The schedule, addressed to SA fast bowler Dale Steyn, was instead slipped under the door of a hotel guest.
JOHANNESBURG - A South African dossier containing New Zealand's batting strengths and weaknesses has been revealed just hours before the first one-day international between the two sides in Centurion.
The schedule, addressed to the South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn, was instead slipped under the door of a hotel guest, who posted it on Facebook.
It details areas to bowl, how various batsmen cope with bouncers, and the best options for bowling in the final overs.
Martin Guptill, is seen as vulnerable against bouncers, Kane Williamson, will be targeted as a batsman who does not pull well.
The all-rounder Grant Elliott requires yorkers angling in late while bouncers are seen as a dot-ball option.
Both the newcomer George Worker and wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi are seen as compulsive pullers and hookers.
This is not the first time a 'top-secret' team dossier has inadvertently slipped into the wrong hands.
The Australian team's plans for South Africa's batsmen was revealed on the eve of their Test series in November 2012.
