South Africa Announced Squad For Upcoming ODI Series Against Sri Lanka
South Africa have announced their team squad for the upcoming ODI series scheduled to commence next month against Sri Lanka. The team will be led by Faf du Plessis, and it will be South Africa’s first ODI series after AB de Villiers’ retirement.
The first match of the upcoming ODI series will be played on July 29 at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla.
The tour against Sri Lanka will start with a two-day practice match followed by the international matches. The five-match ODI series will start from July 29 with Dambulla, Palekelle, and Colombo, being the venues for the encounters.
The Test team has already been declared earlier with the likes of Dale Steyn making their comeback. As per the reports of Cricbuzz, they also have Quinton de Kock as the sole wicket-keeper.
The experienced Faf du Plessis has been given the mantle of captaincy. Hashim Amla and JP Duminy are the most experienced batsmen in the lineup.
Dala, who played the T20 International series which was played against India, has not played a single ODI Match for South Africa.
He had replaced Chris Morris for the Delhi Daredevils in the 2018 IPL. Morris, who is still struggling with his back issues, does not make the cut.
Here’s the full squad of South Africa for upcoming ODI series:
Faf du Plessis (c), Hashim Amla, Junior Dala, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Wiaan Mulder, Lungisani Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi.
