David Miller, Wayne Parnell and Dwaine Pretorius will feature in the South Africa A squad for the two four-day matches against Australia, set to be played next month. The trio will come in place of Theunis de Bruyn, Temba Bavuma and Duanne Olivier – all three of who are part of South Africa’s Test squad for the England series.
The SA A side had a disappointing tour of England and this series together with the following four-day series against India A is a very important one,” Linda Zondi, Cricket South Africa (CSA) Selection Convener, said on Wednesday (June 28). “The additions to the squad bring a lot of top-level experience with them and this will help the younger players to develop.
CSA selectors also named the squad for the triangular series to follow, which also involves Australia A and India A. The one-dayer squadhas more experience with the presence of Farhaan Behardien, Aaron Phangiso and Henry Davids. Reeza Hendricks and Tabraiz Shamsi, who were a part of the recently-concluded ODI side in England will also feature for South Africa A in the triangular series.
While the four-day squad will be led by Aiden Markram, Khaya Zondo will captain the limited overs side.
