Proteas Women stalwarts Marizanne Kapp and captain, Dane van Niekerk have both been named in the International Cricket Council's Women's ODI Team of the Decade.

The team includes Australia's Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning as well as Suzie Bates of New Zealand but perhaps surprisingly only features one player from England, wicket-keeper Sarah Taylor.

Other members are Mithali Raj (India), Stafanie Taylor (West Indies), Jhulan Goswami (India) and Anisa Mohammed (West Indies).

Kapp has played 108 ODIs for the Proteas scoring 1834 runs at an average of 27.37 while taking 123 wickets at 23.40.

Van Niekerk has played 101 ODIs scoring 2115 runs at an average of 36.46 and taking 130 wickets at 19.60
