Linde, currently at the national academy, is a man with the potential and his disconcerting bounce and spin can set up early failure for top-batsmen.
“He just needs experience and greater consistency,” said Adams.
Linde has taken 74 wickets in 21 first-class games. The 23-year old also impressed during the Cape Cobras’ all-conquering Ram Slam T20 Challenge in 2014/2015.
Adams said Piedt’s confidence is back and they will scrutinize and check in with the player in the build-up to the South Africa A-tour to India.
Piedt suffered a serious shoulder injury in 2014, and struggled initially upon his return, but is rejuvenated after the national spinner’s camp.
The off-spinner is a man capable of bamboozling international batsmen with his array of attacking weapons. He captured eight for 152 on test debut for South Africa.
