This letter comes to you in the name of AB de Villiers. Had written you it himself but is a little busies something about a World Cup going on so it only had time to give a press conference
He was able to squeeze in a few minutes to read their letter and even if you could feel that it was written "from the heart". He knows that "when a man speaks from the heart you should listen." While you told him that his heart is dressed in black who believes that his Board "comes from a good place" and that he wants to "take the good things that" and "thank you for the input." He said that he will try to "enforce the good points" when his team plays West Indies.
I'll start with what he said about his own leadership he admitted must be bold especially because he is on the cusp of a suspension for violations. AB and team management could change captains to try to avoid a penalty but after Sri Lanka did that in the world T20 already it is not allowed. AB was informed that: "because I am the captain nominated for the tournament which will continue to receive the ban."
So the first thing that will focus on sharpening up as you said. He knows there is no "nothing more that you can do except just do the right thing" but that "is easier said that doing so." He is hoping to be able to use their spinners and bowlers part timer to speed things up. So definitely get to see more of Imran Tahir the man who has impressed you so much. You can even get your wish on a better use of JP Duminy who Bowl a bit more and may be inspired to be more offensive.
I am not sure that you will get your wish regarding Wayne Parnell however. His place in the XI is not safe even with Vernon Philander low by injury since South Africa "have managed to make some difficult decisions" on the composition of their attack. They are playing with bringing Kyle Abbott on which also will offer some swing but also wants to take a step towards death. AB was not willing to confirm how the selection will go but like you recognized Parnell ability with the bat saying "If Abbott comes in it is a little less than a batter of Parny and I might have to go for the seven batsmen then".
