Future star Andile Phehlukwayo has been named in the Proteas ODI squads to play against Ireland and Australia.
He is one of three new caps in the limited overs series, joining Temba Bavuma and Dwaine Pretorius.
Morne Morkel and Rilee Rossouw, who are recovering fitness, will be replaced by Dale Steyn and David Miller who missed out on the last ODI Series against the West Indies and Australia.
‘Morkel and Rossouw were not considered for selection as they continue to recover from injury and a lack of match fitness respectively, while AB de Villiers is on track to return from the injury that kept him out of the Test Series against New Zealand,’ said CSA Selection Committee Convener, Linda Zondi.
‘Andile was our leading wicket-taker for South Africa A in the recently-concluded Quadrangular Series in Australia and he has been knocking on the door for some time following his strong performances in last season’s Momentum One-Day Cup.’ added Zondi.
‘Both he and Dwaine have shown excellent form recently and the same applies to David Miller who topped the batting averages in Australia for the South Africa A squad with the outstanding figures of 332 runs at an average of 110 with a strike rate of 93.
‘It remains our practice to reward players who do well at franchise and South Africa A level.
‘As far as Temba Bavuma is concerned we want to see what he can do in the ODI format after the extremely successful run he has had in the Test squad where he has averaged 66 during the current calendar year.
