AB de Villiers to captain SA during T20 International Series against England

Durban, June 13 (IBNS):Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday named the Standard Bank Proteas squad for the three-match T20 International Series in England to be played immediately after the conclusion of the ICC Champions Trophy Tournament in June.

AB de Villiers will captain the side in the absence of regular T20 captain Faf du Plessis.

“I would like to thank Farhaan Behardien for leading the side so ably in the recent series against Sri Lanka,” commented CSA National Selection Panel convener, Linda Zondi.

“We are indeed fortunate in the quality of our team leaders and Farhaan remains very much part of this group," Linda Zondi was quoted as saying by the CSA website.

“We have also been impressed as a panel by the quality of players coming through our franchise and South Africa ‘A’ system and we are ready to give further opportunities to Andile Phehlukwayo, Mangaliso Mosehle, Jon-Jon Smuts and Dane Paterson who all made their debuts in the recent series against Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, Lungi Ngidi could not be considered because of injury," Zondi said.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the newcomers to play alongside world-class and experienced players like AB, Farhaan, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris and Wayne Parnell," Zondi said.

There is one new cap in this format in Dwaine Pretorius, who has been a regular member of the ODI squad during the past season.

Standard Bank Proteas T20 International Squad: AB de Villiers (Multiply Titans, capt), Farhaan Behardien (Multiply Titans), Reeza Hendricks (bizhub Highveld Lions), Imran Tahir (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), David Miller (VKB Knights), Morne Morkel (Multiply Titans), Chris Morris (Multiply Titans), Mangaliso Mosehle (bizhub Highveld Lions), Wayne Parnell (Cape Cobras), Dane Paterson (Cape Cobras), Andile Phehlukwayo (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), Dwaine Pretorius (bizhub Highveld Lions), Tabraiz Shamsi (Multiply Titans), Jon-Jon Smuts (Warriors)
