Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced the ODI and T20I groups on Thursday to which they will travel Sri Lanka for the upcoming series.
The Proteas’s will be without key players Quinton de Kock (rested), David Miller (thigh muscle injury) and Lungi Ngidi (personal reasons) for their three-match one-day series against the islanders.
Meanwhile, fast bowling versatile Dwaine Pretorius was recalled for both ODIs and T20Is after being forced out of recent tours to Western India and Ireland for medical reasons.
CSA Convenor of Selectors, Victor Mpitsang, said in an official release: ‘The selection panel is happy to announce the groups that will go to Sri Lanka at the end of this month. Following the successes of the white ball teams in the West Indies and Ireland, we are excited to have them back in action and continue their preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup later this year. With the many bio-bubbles caused by the COVID-19 that the tour groups had to endure, it is a pleasure to have the majority of our players available for action, and we look forward to seeing them in the very different conditions of Sri Lanka. ”.
