“We are pleased to have our A team playing again. This is vital for the growth of our next tier of players who have been starved of international experience of late,” said Cricket South Africa convenor of selectors Victor Mpitsang.

All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo and others, who will tour the West Indies with the Proteas later this year, have been named in South Africa A’s limited-overs squad.

“The one-day series, in particular, will act as match preparation for our Proteas who will be taking part in the white-ball leg of the tour to the West Indies,” added Mpitsang.
