South Africa named a 16-member squad for the upcoming T20I Series against England & Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022. Sune Luus will lead the team as regular Captain Dane Van Niekerk rehabilitating from an ankle fracture that she sustained earlier this year.
Mignon Du Preez who announced her retirement from the Test & ODI formats makes a comeback to the T20I side after missing the series against Ireland in June. After three match T0I series against England, the squad except uncapped player Delmi Tucker will travel to Birmingham for Commonwealth Games 2022. The chairman of the selection committee, Clinton Du Preez said that the presence of Mignon would enable the team to be more flexible with their batting.
“With key players not available, we remain very excited to compete in the Commonwealth Games. Having Mignon Du Preez adds experience to the squad & allows for some strategic changes in the batting line-up”, Clinton Du Preez said in a statement.
“It once again allows the opportunity for players to showcase their skills as post the Games we prepare for the home T20 World Cup, & the team has the capabilities to finish within the medals. We could not have asked for a better opportunity to prepare for these Games, with the tour of Ireland & also against England. It has allowed for much rotation & opportunities to Players”, he added.
South Africa will take on England Women in three-match T20I series to be played from July 21 to 25 before heading to Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games 2022.
