South Africa coach Russell Domingo has not yet been given a mandate about the targets his bosses expect him to implement for the New Zealand Tests. The two-match series is the first South Africa play since last months announcement that CSA will impose selection criteria relating to the number of players of colour in all national teams in accordance with a memorandum of understanding signed with the countrys sports ministry.There has been nothing officially documented to me at the moment. We will continue to do what we have always done and that is pick our best XI players, Domingo said.South Africa have - officially between the late 1990s and 2002, and unofficially since then - adhered to a policy of an average of four players of colour in a starting XI. The most recent example of this application came during the 2015 World Cup semi-final when Vernon Philander, who had battled injury through the tournament, was picked ahead of the in-form Kyle Abbott after South Africas captain, coach and convener of selectors had met with the CEO, who reminded them of the need to pick the best XI bearing in mind transformation guidelines.In the immediate aftermath of the tournament, domestic targets in South Africa were increased. Each franchise was required to field at least six players of colour, of which at least two had to be black African, up from five players of colour the season before, but CSA maintained there was no pressure to do the same at the national level.However, in April this year, CSA became one of four national federations to be banned from bidding for or hosting major tournaments by the sports ministry as punishment for the slow rate of transformation. The ministry deemed teams that comprised 60% players of colour to be representative. Cricket fell short by 5%.In order to meet the 60% criteria, South Africa would need to field at least seven players of colour in the national team. The squad for the upcoming New Zealand series includes seven players of colour, of which two are black African, and Domingo insists all of them will play on merit. We are fortunate in that it hasnt been an issue for this particular side. If someone says to me Kagiso Rabada is playing because he is black, they can go and jump in the Indian Ocean because he is a world-class player, Domingo said. And if someone says Hashim Amla or JP Duminy or Dane Piedt is playing because of the colour of their skin, they are smoking something. They have proven themselves at domestic cricket and in international cricket. We are just going on business as usual.However, several local media institutions have reported that CSA and the ministry have agreed on six players of colour as long as two are black African, which will present an additional challenge to team balance. Already, Domingo has indicated South Africa will field a specialist spinner, and with Piedt the only option in that department, he will fulfill that requirement while also filling up one of the players of colour slots.We always want to lean towards playing a spinner. The wicket in Durban over the last five or six years has helped the spinners. Also, for the development of our team, its important that we give the spinner the opportunity to try and settle into that position, Domingo said.With the top five settled - Stephen Cook, Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis and JP Duminy - and filling up another two of the player of colour slots, the competition will come in the lower order and bowling department. South Africa have two options for the allrounders spot in Wayne Parnell and Chris Morris, although they may opt to use Vernon Philander in that position at the outset. They also have four bowlers to choose from, including Dale Steyn, Philander, Abbott and Rabada, with Abbott the most likely to miss out.Although both Steyn and Philander sat out a significant part of the previous season with injuries, Domingo indicated they were in line for recalls on reputation alone. Welcoming Dale and Vernon back after a long time with their experience, to go with the excitement of Rabada, is good for us, he said. We are very glad to have Dale back. He gives the side a lot of confidence and a lot of belief. Also, it puts the opposition under a bit of pressure, knowing that Dale Steyn is in the line-up.Perhaps the only thing that will push Abbott ahead is that Kingsmead was his home ground - he has since moved to Warriors at St Georges Park in Port Elizabeth - although like everyone else, he may not know what to expect from the conditions in August. Never before has a Test been played in Durban at this time of the year, and Domingo is expecting some unknowns.For five or six days out, the pitch looks pretty good, he said. Theyve got to take more time because theres not as much heat as there is in summer, but it looks really good. I am a little bit concerned with the outfield, it doesnt look too good. We also dont know how much the ball is going to swing in the morning, or if the field will be dry when we start in the morning. Those are the things we need to consider. Youth Orioles Jerseys .

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- After losing back-to-back home games to Western Michigan and to Illinois State to begin the 2016 season, Northwestern knew it would be pressed to qualify for a bowl game.But including Saturdays 45-17 victory at Purdue, the Wildcats (5-5, 4-3 Big Ten) are within one victory of bowl eligibility, having carved their path by posting a 3-1 record in conference road games.In addition to Purdue, they also have won at Iowa and at Michigan State.Clayton Thorson passed for a career-best 352 yards and three touchdowns, and Northwestern scored 31 second-half points on its way to an easy victory at Purdue (3-7, 1-6), which has lost five in a row by an average margin of 21.2 points.Thorson, who also ran for a touchdown, completed 23 of 36 passes, including five for 92 yards and two touchdowns to wide receiver Austin Carr, who tied the school single-season record with 12 TD receptions.Every time we came out in the second half, we were just licking our chops to get another good drive going, Carr said. We were clicking on all cylinders. And of course, a bowl is a huge motivator. We viewed these last three games as a three-game playoff.Austin Jackson rushed 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown, and John Moten IV had 16 carries for 119 yards, marking the first time since Sept. 14, 2013 against Western Michigan that two Northwestern backs rushed for more than 100 yards in the same game.The receivers were getting open, but the offensive line was playing really well, Thorson said. There were only one or two times that I was rushed to even make a throw.Thorsons third touchdown pass -- a 42-yarder to Garrett Dickerson on the first play after an interception by linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. -- gave Northwestern a 28-10 lead with 11:13 remaining in the third quarter. The Wildcats steadily pulled away.Finishing with 605 yards of offense, Northwestern outscored Purdue 31-7 during the final 30 minutes.We didnt start the way we wanted, obviously, but you need to credit Purdue for that, Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald said. We kneew we would get a fast start from them.dddddddddddd We talked about the first series of the second half being really important. Obviously, depth is important, especially when you see a couple of their defensive starters out.Northwestern spotted Purdue a 10-0, first-quarter lead, then scored the opening halfs final 14 points to lead 14-10 through 30 minutes. Purdue lost its fifth in a row.The Wildcats extended their lead to 21-10 on Justin Jacksons 14-yard touchdown run, capping a seven-play, 71-yard drive.We certainly are not happy with the second half result, Purdue interim coach Gerad Parker said. This isnt what the Purdue football program should be about, especially in our home stadium.Purdue quarterback David Blough completed 21 of 36 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown, but he was intercepted three times, setting up 17 Northwestern points.I simply missed my spot on the first interception, Blough said. Thats the frustrating part, and they capitalized. It hurts. All three of my turnovers led to points. We have not executed well, and it seems to happen at the same point in games. We have been in positions to have success in the second half, and we have not done it.TAKEAWAYS:Northwestern: Needing two victories in their final three games to become bowl eligible, the Wildcats scored touchdowns on each of their first four second-half drives and pulled away from the struggling Boilermakers. Northwestern gained 557 yards during the first three quarters.Purdue: Playing without their two best defenders -- Jake Replogle (concussion) and JaWhaun Bentley (leg) -- the Boilermakers defense was no match for Northwesterns balanced offense and fell to 0-15 in November games during the four most recent seasons.UP NEXT:Northwestern: The Wildcats travel to Minnesota on Nov. 19 for their final Big Ten road game.Purdue: The Boilermakers will play host to No. 7 Wisconsin on Nov. 19 in their final Big Ten home game.
