Proteas to name ODI, T20I squads
South Africa’s limited-overs squads for October and November’s tours of New Zealand and Australia will be announced on Tuesday.
Three ODIs will be played in New Zealand and five in Australia. The Proteas and Australians will also meet for three Twenty20 Internationals.
Fast bowler Morne Morkel and all-rounder Wayne Parnell, who are nursing shoulder injuries, are expected to be named in the touring parties.
Batsman Rilee Rossouw’s selection, meanwhile, remained in the balance. Rossouw debuted in the ODI tri-series against Zimbabwe and the Aussies at the Harare Sports Club in August – but managed a managed a mere 36 runs in three innings.
The composition of the T20I squad might feature a recall for the hard-hitting Richard Levi.
The right-handed Levi has not played the shortest form of the international game since December 2012, but gathered a fine stretch of form for the Cape Cobras in the Champions League Twenty20 and Northamptonshire in English County Cricket recently.
This tour will largely serve as preparation for next year’s World Cup in Australasia, where the Proteas have been pooled with India, Pakistan, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Ireland and United Arab Emirates.
