Cape Town - Morne van Wyk of the Dolphins will captain South Africa 'A' in their T20 tour match against England at Boland Park, Paarl, next Wednesday, February 17.
The match squad includes several members of the Proteas T20 squad for the ICC World Twenty20 in David Miller, Farhaan Behardien and Aaron Phangiso, while Wayne Parnell and Beuran Hendricks return after injury lay-offs.
“This is a very important match for the players involved,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection committee convener, Linda Zondi. “Although our squad for the ICC tournament has already been announced, injuries are a fact of life and it is important that possible replacements are fit and in good form.”
There are first opportunities at this level for the Warriors duo of Jon-Jon Smuts and Sisanda Magala.
