Proteas test spinner Keshav Maharaj has been named in a young South Africa ODI squad to face Australia which has Dwaine Pretorius, Rassie van der Dussen and Faf du Plessis amongst its absentees.
Kyle Verreynne has earned another call up despite not featuring against England whilst youngsters Lutho Sipamla and Janneman Malan are once again in the fold as South Africa seek to start building for the future.
With the completion of the 2019 Cricket World Cup and the next one being three years away from now, we always saw the series against England and Australia as an opportunity to play some fresh talent,” remarked head coach, Mark Boucher. “If we feel that we need to rest players, we will, as we have done in the recent past.
“Faf (du Plessis) has been fantastic for us in white ball cricket and remains very much in our ODI plans and we will manage his workload for the near future diligently.
“I would like to strengthen our depth pool right now and see what players we have out there. I feel that this is the time and opportunity to do so,” he concluded.
