South Africa's 15-man squad for the 2019 World Cup in the United Kingdom have been named, with up to 10 notable omissions. So we went with David Miller, who kept in the Sri Lanka series.
With 7910 runs to his name, 36-year-old Hashim Amla is one of the most successful ODI batsmen of all time for South Africa but he has been struggling for form over the past one year.
Faf du Plessis will lead the side and he also gave an encouraging speech which was shown in the squad announcement ceremony.
South Africa's campaign in the 2015 World Cup ended in controversy over quotas when official pressure was exerted to pick Vernon Philander for a semi-final against New Zealand despite the team management wanting to stay with the team that won a quarter-final against Sri Lanka, when Philander was injured.
With South Africa opting for Amla's experience, and Markram's imposing domestic form, there were no major surprises when the squad was announced on Thursday afternoon.
A back-up opener for De Kock, Amla or Aiden Markram could have been a handy luxury in the UK.

Black, who was driving, was found with marijuana, and officers discovered a Glock 9 mm pistol in the vehicle. They also found two loaded handguns and a third in the trunk of a Porsche, driven by one of his associates.
There was no place in the squad for allrounder Chris Morris, who is now playing for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL, and who is one of several South Africa players taking part in the league, with Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir now topping the wicket charts there.
"We feel that Faf's team is well equipped to handle whatever conditions are presented to them, bearing in mind the weather extremes one can encounter in the British Isles", Zondi said.
Proteas World Cup squad: Faf du Plessis (c), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, David Miller, Rassie van der Dussen, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje, Aiden Markram. England are playing in England, and they're playing some good white-ball cricket. Duminy will retire after the World Cup.
South Africa kick off the 2019 World Cup against the tournament hosts England at The Oval in London on May 30. They are winners in their own right.
Zondi said Nortje and fellow fast bowler Lungi Ngidi were recovering well from injury and were expected to be fit for a pre-tournament camp next month.
