    Keegan Petersen - Solid right-handed batter from South Africa



    Impressive 62 in the 2nd Test against India.

    Supposed to be the successor to Faf as SA's most dependable batter - but will he succed?

    He looks very organized and possesses a tight defence, probably needs a bit more confidence about his place in the side before he improves his strike-rate. I do feel that number 3 is a spot too high for him, I'd rather him bat at 4 and move van der Dussen up.

    Played a beautiful little knock in the first innings as one half of a crucial early partnership. Contributed in the second innings as well. Looking forward to seeing more of him.

    Impressed the way Keegan Petersen played. He's playing his sixth Test, but was so compact and assured.
    A bright prospect for South Africa.

    Very efficient player.

    Could be something big in the making for South Africa.


    Have some Sehwag in your life.

    Keegan Petersen | Player of the Match | Player of the Series vs India!

    Keegan Petersen | Player of the Match | Player of the Series: It hasn't sunk in yet. It's a mixed bag to be honest. Happy, emotional. I was trying to be positive and then build on that. It's been difficult conditions all around and was just sticking to my guns. It's been a long journey, can't tell the whole story now, won't be over till tomorrow morning. It's been challenging surfaces, challenging bowling attacks. We knew it was going to be difficult - they're a high quality bowling attack, a high quality team. We just wanted to have the mindset to fight it out. Enjoying it (success) a lot. The longer you bat, the easier it gets (on these pitches). So, just enjoyed it a lot.

    Incredible batting.
    Looked so good every time he was on the crease. The best thing about him he was straight in, looked confortable from ball 1.

    Can't understand he averaged so "low" in FC cricket.
    I will be interested in what he does on the next tours.

    Looks a very solid player.
    On these tough pitches he did very well.
    The thing is he is very experienced in first class structure he has played over 100 FC games.It seems like he is at the peak of his career.

    He is already 28 but he has good 5-7 years left in him.
    Future looks hopeful for South Africa.

    I don't know. Our best players tend to be plugged out of the u-19's and fast tracked through the system (Kallis, Smith, AB, Amla, Steyn, Morkel, Ntini, Rabada, QdK, Markram (yet to fulfill his potential though) etc.). Vernon Philander is the only exception. One could argue Vernon was part of the u/19 setup as well, it's just that it took him until his late 20's to realize his true potential.

    I've yet to see our domestic cricket actually improve players where they contribute to an acceptable level, even a so called "home track bully". All in all he'll do well to carve out a decent career.

    Keegan Peterson has done what VVS Laxman did in 2001.

    This Test Series resembles little bit of India Australia Test Series of 2001.

    The Indian team in 2001 was going through transition with youngsters like ZAK, Bhajji were coming up the ranks along with VVS Laxman, Shiv Sunder Das etc. india were without Anil Kumble.

    Australia under Steven Waugh were coming to conquer india ( final frontier) in 2001.
    They were on 16 consecutive Test Win streak. Ended up winning 1st Test as well in India.
    But lost remaining 2 and lost the series 1-2 and VVS Laxman was unsung hero of the series along with Bhajji.

    Fast forward 2022, India worlds best Test team, won 2 away Test series in Australia, winning 1-2 in England and not lost a home Test series since 2012, came to conquer South Africa.
    Won the First Test but lost remaining two tests and lost the series.

    South Africa also have unsung hero Keegan Peterson and Jansen as superb talent.

    In short never underestimate any opposition specially away from home.

    Saffers are desperate for a young black batsman to become World class, will he become the guy? It would be brilliant for Saffer and World cricket if this happens.

    After watching his knock in the 2nd Innings of the 3rd Test, I agree with Elgar's post-match claim:

    Always knew he was a good player. I think he's gone into a great player mould.
