Not the worst amongst South Africa's bowlers is he?

In fact, he's a good bowling all-rounder overall, seven wickets thus far into the tournament for about 90 runs, including a 4/19 today. Not a mug with the bat either.
 
Ryan McLaren - Decent Utility Player

More than a utility player, he's a pretty good bowling all rounder. Just needed some time from the selectors to find his feet at international level.

The guy has had the short end of the stick, often fighting for his place when he started while hacks like Kleinveldt and Behardien were given free reign.
 
He is a good bowler and a very good batsman.

Looks like SA have found their new era Lance Klusener.

I would love to have someone like McLaren in Indian team. He nicely balances the team.
 
Shows a lot of heart, doesn't he?

One of their few positives from his tour I think.
 
He is bits n pieces but has a lot of heart and more often than not contributes.

IMO he should be a lock along with Peterson. Good enterprising cricketers.
 
Yeah. I really like his bowling

He was the only one not going for 10 wides every match while his friends made Wahab Riaz look like an accurate bowler
 
He is a good bowler and a very good batsman.

klus was actually a batting allrounder
 
These kind of players really balance the side and you can easily Play 5 specialist bowlers. Plus SA have pieterson and duminy also improving.
 
He has really improved a lot. And I believe he can only get better. If he doesn't keep getting dropped for fat kleinveldt.
 
Cape Town - Former Proteas all-rounder Ryan McLaren has announced his retirement from first-class cricket with immediate effect.

McLaren, 35, confirmed the news on his Twitter account on Thursday.

"I have learned from many to know when it's the right time.The time has come for me to retire from first class cricket. I'm grateful to share a changeroom with some of the best our country has produced," he wrote.

"Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the support I have had from my wife, family, coaches and teammates both in SA and in county cricket. I have absolutely loved every part of what this game has taught me…time for some white ball fun now."

McLaren's final four-day match for the Knights was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to the poor outfield conditions in Willowmoore Park in Benoni.

McLaren has played two Tests, 54 ODIs and 12 T20Is for the Proteas from 2009 to 2014.

The all-rounder will remain part of the Knights' white-ball campaigns. The Knights play in the upcoming One Day Cup tournament, which gets underway on February 8.
