JOHANNESBURG - Dane Paterson is the only new cap in the Proteas ODI squad for the Momentum ODI Series against Bangladesh to be played later this month.
Morne Morkel could not be considered because of injury.
“Dane did very well in the T20 International Series against England earlier this year, particularly when it came to death bowling,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) National Selection Panel Convener Linda Zondi. “We now want to see if he can do a similar job in the 50 overs format.
“Faf du Plessis will lead the Proteas now that he has taken over the captaincy from AB de Villiers in the ODI format. This is the start of our campaign to begin preparing our squad for the 2019 ICC World Cup,” Zondi concluded.
Proteas ODI squad: Faf du Plessis (Multiply Titans, capt), Hashim Amla (WSB Cape Cobras), Temba Bavuma (WSB Cape Cobras), Farhaan Behardien (Multiply Titans), Quinton de Kock (Multiply Titans), AB de Villiers (Multiply Titans), JP Duminy (WSB Cape Cobras), Imran Tahir (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), David Miller (VKB Knights), Wayne Parnell (WSB Cape Cobras), Dane Paterson (WSB Cape Cobras), Andile Phehlukwayo (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), Dwaine Pretorius (bizhub Highveld Lions), Kagiso Rabada (bizhub Highveld Lions)
