Markram, Duminy and Amla all set for return to Proteas ODI Squad
Aiden Markram returns to the Standard Bank Proteas ODI squad for the final two Momentum One-Day International matches against Sri Lanka on the back of his outstanding recent form that included back-to-back centuries that have helped propel his Multiply Titans franchise to the top spot on the Momentum One-Day Cup log.
The squad also features the return of experienced hands Hashim Amla and JP Duminy. The latter has made a successful comeback for the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras after being out of action for several months following shoulder surgery.
“Experience is always a key factor in major tournaments such as the ICC Men’s World Cup,” commented Cricket South Africa National Selection Panel Convener (CSA NSP) Linda Zondi. “It is great to see how well JP has regained his best form after being out of action for so long.
“What has also been highly encouraging is see how well the Proteas have played when they have returned to franchise cricket. It is important that they should dominate at this level and that their skills should rub off on our emerging talent.
“JP, Aiden and Dwaine Pretorius have all made significant contributions to their franchises in recent matches.
“We will use the final two matches in the ODI series to continue to examine all the options that are available to us as far as the World Cup squad is concerned,” concluded Mr. Zondi.
