• Proteas duo to miss tour match

    AB de Villiers and Chris Morris have been withdrawn from the SA Invitation XI to play Zimbabwe in a three-day tour match at Boland Park, starting on Wednesday.

    De Villiers, who is suffering from lower back strain, has been withdrawn as a precaution and will be fit for the Proteas’ Test against Zimbabwe in Port Elizabeth.

    Young Western Province all-rounder Dayyaan Galiem has been brought into the SA Invitation XI as a replacement for Morris – who is nursing a groin strain.

    SA Invitation XI squad: Dominic Hendricks (Highveld Lions, capt), Temba Bavuma (Cape Cobras), Tladi Bokako (Warriors), Michael Cohen (Cape Cobras), Isaac Dikgale (North West), Leus du Plooy (Knights), Dayyaan Galiem (Western Province), Zubayr Hamza (Cape Cobras), Kagiso Rapulana (North West), Kelly Smuts (Warriors), Dale Steyn (Titans), Ricardo Vasconcelos (Boland), Shaun von Berg (Titans), Lizaad Williams (Cape Cobras).
