“We were highly encouraged by the performance put up by the Proteas at Newlands,” commented CSA selection convener, Linda Zondi.

“The very fact that they were nearly able to force a win after conceding 600 runs on the first innings speaks volumes for the character of this group of players.

“We feel we have all our bases covered and also the options that will enable the team to exploit whatever conditions they encounter at the Wanderers and at SuperSport Park.”

With the ODI squad reduced from 15 to 14 Aaron Phangiso drops out from the squad that won their most recent series in India.

Rilee Rossouw, an original selection against India but forced to withdraw through injury, is fit to take his place again.

The Proteas squad for the two-match T20 series will be confirmed in due course.
