SA W vs WI W 2022: CSA announced an 18 member Squad for the five match ODI Series

SA W vs WI W 2022: CSA announced an 18 member ODI squad that will lock horns with West Indies in a five-match ODI series starting on janaury 28. CSA has handed all-rounder Sune Luus an opportunity to lead the Proteas squad in the upcoming ODI series.

The side will miss the services of two of their key senior players- Dane Van Niekerk (ankle injury) as well as Lizelle Lee (Covid). Chloe Tryon will serve as Sune Luus’s deputy captain in the ODI series.

“Sune has really managed the captaincy quite well in the absence of our leaders, Dane and Chloe, and we are quite excited to be giving her the role again and in our conversations with her, she really rolled out the pathway for us, getting through the West Indies tour and for the World Cup,” said Clinton du Preez, Convenor of Selectors.

“We are quite happy to have her back in that role and I am sure the leadership and the senior players in the team will give her massive support. Chloe as the vice-captain is a great combination between the two individuals and personalities and we think it will be a balanced approach for our successes.”

The five-match ODI series will serve as a preparatory ground for the Proteas Squad to gear up for the crucial World Cup which is few months away from commencement. The South Africa Women & West Indies Women have earlier come into a face-off in a five-match ODI series held in the Caribbean in August 2021. That series was won by South Africa by a massive 4-1 margin.

Off-spinner Raisibe Ntozakhe will make a comeback to the Proteas squad. Ntozakhe had last played for South Africa in 2018 when she was suspended from bowling in International matches owing to her illegal bowling action. She has been recently cleared from suspension & is free to return back to action.

“It’s greatly important for us to fill the vacancy of Dane van Niekerk, and therefore we looked at a few options. It is also quite exciting to have Raisibe Ntozakhe back in the squad and for her to be playing international cricket again, it will be a great opportunity for her to revive her career,” du Preez said.

“We are quite comfortable with the squad we have selected. It’s a balanced squad and we have gone for an extended squad to give more players an opportunity to ensure that we complement the skillsets within the team”.

“With the conditions up in Johannesburg, it will suit us to play against the West Indies. They are normally used to the slow, turning wickets and for now, it is a great opportunity to strike with our bowlers and to also have a balanced approach to those results.”
