South Africa announce squads for Sri Lanka white-ball series; Dwaine Pretorius, Junior Dala return

[ad_1]

Quinton
de
Kock
and
David
Miller
have
been
rested
for
the
ODIs
but
are
set
to
return
for
the
T20Is.
Miller
is
currently
recovering
from
a
hamstring
injury
that
he
suffered
during
the
Ireland
series
but
is
expected
to
be
fit
in
time
to
play
the
T20Is,
which
begin
on
10
September.

After
missing
the
tours
of
the
West
Indies
and
Ireland,
Dwaine
Pretorius
is
set
to
return
and
has
been
named
in
both
squads.
Junior
Dala,
who
last
played
an
ODI
for
the
Proteas
in
2018,
also
returns
to
the
squad
to
cover
up
for
Lungi
Ngidi’s
absence
from
the
first
leg
of
the
tour.

The
T20I
series
will
be
key
for
both
teams
to
test
their
preparedness
for
the
ICC
Men’s
T20
World
Cup
later
this
year.

“The
Selection
Panel
is
pleased
to
announce
the
squads
that
will
go
to
Sri
Lanka
at
the
end
of
this
month,”
said
Victor
Mpitsang,
the
CSA
Convenor
of
Selectors.
“After
the
white-ball
teams’ successes
in
the
West
Indies
and
Ireland,
we
are
excited
to
have
them
back
in
action
and
continuing
their
preparation
for
the
ICC
T20
World
Cup
later
this
year.”

“With
the
many
COVID-19-induced
bio-bubbles
that
the
touring
squads
have
had
to
endure,
it
is
pleasing
to
have
the
majority
of
our
players
available
for
action
and
we
look
forward
to
watching
them
in
the
very
different
conditions
of
Sri
Lanka.”

“I
would
like
to
wish
Temba
Bavuma
and
Mark
Boucher
all
the
best
for
what
we
know
will
be
a
challenging
tour,
but
we
have
every
confidence
in
the
squads
selected
and
the
leadership
behind
them.”
