MARKRAM AND BAVUMA TO LEAD SOUTH AFRICA A IN INDIA

Aiden Markram has been named as captain of the four-day squad and Temba Bavuma as captain of the one-day squad for the South Africa A tour to India in August and September.

The tour consists of five one-day matches to be followed by two four-day matches against India A.

Newcomers at this level are the Warriors duo of opening batsmen, Eddie Moore and Matthew Breetzke, as well as the spin bowling all-rounder pair of George Linde of the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras and Bjorn Fortuin of the bizhub Highveld Lions.

In addition, World Sports Betting Cape Cobras opening batsman Janneman Malan, Warriors wicketkeeper-batsman Sinethemba Qeshile and Warriors fast bowler Lutho Sipamla have already represented the Standard Bank Proteas at T20 International level.

“This is one of the most important South Africa A tours we have planned for some time,” commented CSA National Selection Panel (NSP) convener Linda Zondi “as it will focus on several important strategic areas.

“One of these is to broaden our leadership group and we see both Aiden and Temba playing an important role in this regard. We will be looking at other candidates during the course of the new season.

“Another is the opportunity to give some of our senior batsmen the chance to climatize for the Proteas Test match tour to India in October, and a third is to give an opportunity to younger players who have earned their chance through outstanding performances at a domestic level,” concluded Mr Zondi.
