Off Spinner Johan Botha will be leading a 15-man South Africa Squad to take part in the upcoming Zimbabwe Triangular Twenty20 Series. The South African Board has decided to rest AB de Villiers, Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. All the four senior players had a hectic run in the recently concluded Indian Premier League. Botha too was part of the IPL but didn’t play as much as the others.
The South African squad has an uncapped all-rounder in Chris Morris. Although Morris might get a game or more than that, he would still remain uncapped as the Triangular T20 Series doesn’t have the official status from the ICC!
South Africa’s 15-man squad for the Zimbabwe Triangular Twenty20 Series 2012:
Johan Botha (Captain), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Dane Vilas (Wicket Keeper), JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Colin Ingram, Richard Levi, Albie Morkel, Chris Morris, Justin Ontong, Wayne Parnell, Robin Peterson, Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Marchant de Lange
