Fresh faces in SA T20 squad | Sport24
I am actually extremely happy with the T20 team. Kinda surprised with some of the negative comments regarding the team selection. Can't wait for guys like Davids, de Kock, Morris and Phangiso to get a run, they all thoroughly deserve it. Also happy to see that we are persisting with Levi, the dude is well worth it, and has been scoring a bucket load of late. AB is in the squad, but won't play by the looks of it, so Faf is captain for the series. He has been around the squad long enough so I don't see the problem, and besides back in the school day he was bossing AB and Rudolph around as captain. Not a huge fan of Int T20, but this is actually our best team possible, and couldn't be happier that Amla and Kallis are sitting out. First time in a long time I'm actually excited about a T20 series.
Tahir dropped for Test squad | Sport24
Not as happy with the Test squad as I am with the T20 squad. Rudolph shouldn't be there full stop. Glad they are sticking with Elgar, and also happy with the Tahir dropping.
Decent mix there.
Hudders has already said that Elgar will get a run and Rudolph will be the standby batsman. Also glad with Tahir's dropping.
A 12-man SA 'A' or Invitational side to play in the T20 Warm-up on the 18th in PMB was also chosen.
