The Proteas will take a small peek in to their future when they take on Pakistan in a limited overs series.


Allrounder Wihan Lubbe and fast bowler Lizaad Williams have received their first call-ups to a South African squad, with Lubbe included in the T20 squad to face Pakistan next month, and Williams in both the T20 and ODI squads. Sisanda Magala, who was part of South Africa's limited-overs squads to play England and Australia last summer but could not get a game because of fitness concerns, is in both squads.

Aiden Markram and Wiaan Mulder have both been recalled to the ODI squad after last playing in 2019, while Migael Pretorius, who was part of the Test squad against Sri Lanka but did not play, has been selected for the T20s. Kyle Verreynne is also part of the T20 squad for the first time. Daryn Dupavillon is back in the ODI squad after debuting in March 2020.

The teams will be captained by Temba Bavuma, who takes over from Quinton de Kock, who has been named in the squad but, along with the rest of the IPL contracted players will be released early. De Kock, Kagiso Rabada, David Miller and Anrich Nortje are the four players who will leave early. Faf du Plessis, who retired from Test cricket last month but remains available in white-ball formats, has not been selected.

"We're very excited about these two squads that we have selected for our home tour against Pakistan. The ODI squad boasts the calibre of talent we have in South African Cricket and I'm really excited to see how they go about the series. We have enough experience within that squad to provide a good challenge to Pakistan when they arrive on our shores," Victor Mpitsang, selection convenor said.

"The T20 squad is also a good indication of our depth as a cricket nation with the loss of some of the senior players to the IPL. We have a massive 18 months of T20 cricket coming up, with two ICC T20 World Cups for players to contest. We as a selection panel are looking forward to seeing what the new additions to the team will contribute to the Proteas' system."

ODI squad: Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock (wk), Beuran Hendricks , Heinrich Klaasen, Janneman Malan, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Jon-Jon Smuts, Rassie van der Dussen, Junior Dala, Lutho Sipamla, Wiaan Mulder, Sisanda Magala, Kyle Verreynne, Daryn Dupavillon, Lizaad Williams
T20 squad: Temba Bavuma (captain) Bjorn Fortuin, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, George Linde, Rassie van der Dussen, Janneman Malan, Sisanda Magala, Dwaine Pretorius, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lutho Sipamla, Kyle Verreynne (wk), Pite van Biljon, Migael Pretorius, Lizaad Williams, Wihan Lubbe

Happy to see:

  1. Kyle Verreynne, Daryn Dupavillon, Lizaad Williams in.
  2. Markram is back
  3. They retained Bjorn Fortuin. There is something about him that I kinda like

Not so happy to see:

  1. van Tonder needs to be around the camp... even for limited overs cricket. He is our future batting superstar along with Verreynne. Perhaps his surname got in the way of his selection
  2. Hendricks is still there
  3. Rickleton is not there

After watching a lot of cricket recently I have higho-ighted the failures that should not have been in the squad 

How Van Tonder could not make the two squads  and Pretorius is on the T20 squad aheqad of Mulder is a mystery only the SAC comedians  would be able to explain.    

I was just a bit puzzled - Faf announced his retirement from test cricket - but said nothing at the time as to the shortened formats.   He is not in the above squads - is he also out of the shortened versions of the game?

Markram is hitting it nicely again. 

Hopefully he keeps it going for 18 months.

He will fail like he did in Pakistan and in local recent series - so dream on.

As long as there are enough blacks in the team then all is well.

Shame poor POCs.

Mar 23, 2021, 22:31

Mar 23, 2021, 23:16

He did Dave. Sorry mate. Look at his numbers.

Mar 23, 2021, 23:27

Bullshit no different to the rest of our players

Mar 24, 2021, 03:23

Hell, all we're asking is for a competitive team, for that you need to pick your best....is that too hard an ask?

Don't insult us with the likes of Dala Junior, Jon Jon Smuts and the likes.
