South Africa Name Provisional Champions Trophy Squad
Cricket South Africa (CSA) has named its 30-man provisional squad for the ICC Champions Trophy 2013, which will be played in England and Wales in June.
Batsman Rilee Rossouw is the only player in the squad who has yet to represent South Africa in any format while Chris Morris and Henry Davids have not played One-Day International cricket.
South Africa won the Champions Trophy in 1998.
In among a hugely experienced squad, there is also a return for Vaughn van Jaarsveld, who last played an ODI in 2009 and Roelof van der Merwe, who hasn't played an ODI since 2010.
Rossouw, 23, has represented South Africa 'A' in first-class, one-day and Twenty20 cricket as well as South Africa Under-19s. He has a career-best of 319 in first-class cricket and his one-day record includes 2,481 runs in 73 matches at an average of 36.48.
