Duminy, Phangiso back for Proteas


JP Duminy and Aaron Phangiso have both been included in the Proteas squad for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against the touring West Indians next month.

Duminy led the South Africans in their most recent T20 series in Australia but was then ruled out of the Test series against the Caribbeans with injury.

Phangiso was a regular in the Proteas limited overs side this year before he was ruled out of that trip Down Under with injury as well.

The left-arm spinner will be available for the entire series against the Windies, while Duminy will only feature in the final match.

For the most part, the selectors have kept faith the players that went down 2-1 to Australia, with then-debutants Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw and Kagiso Rabada all keeping their places in the squad.

Dolphins wicketkeeper and opener Morne van Wyk comes in for the injured Quinton de Kock.

"Once again we are resting a number of senior players who are involved across all three formats," commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener, Andrew Hudson. 

"This will be the last chance to rest them before we get into World Cup mode with the Momentum ODI Series against the West Indies."

The side will once again be led by Faf du Plessis.
