Former Proteas all-rounder Wayne Parnell will captain a reasonably strong Western Province Blitz side for the Cricket South T20 competition that starts on Friday.
Western Province Blitz are in Pool A and they will be facing the Lions on Friday, the South-Western Districts on Saturday and the Northern Cape Heat on Sunday.
The 32-year-old Parnell last played for the national team in 2017 across all formats before taking up a Kolpak contract.
The squad will be coached by Faiek Davids in an interim capacity and will be assisted by the recently retired Rory Kleinveldt after the union lost former coach Ashwell Prince to Bangladesh.
They've also lost Hashim Amla while Vernon Philander has taken up a coaching role with Pakistan.
Davids though still has the likes of Kyle Verreynne, Aviwe Mgijima, Zubayr Hamza and Beuran Hendricks to call on.
