The Proteas Women will attend a two-week national training camp at the CSA High-Performance Centre in Pretoria from Thursday.
The camp will include fitness assessments and technical skills sessions.
Two red-ball, inter-squad matches are also scheduled as the Proteas prepare for their first Test in eight years during their upcoming multiformat tour of England.
“We took a lot of positives from the World Cup, and it was important for us to give the players a well-deserved break after almost 90 days away from home, to give them time to regroup and spend time with family,” said head coach Hilton Moreeng.
“There are two boxes we would like to tick [during the camp]. The first one would be fitness and rehabilitation assessments and then also make sure we touch base with the overall squad, including the high-performance and national academy players.
“This camp will also give everyone an opportunity to play red-ball cricket, which is not a format we’ve played a lot. It is going to be new for most players, so this will be a good opportunity for them to get exposed to that so we can be ready for the Test match when we get to England.”
In an expanded squad of 27 players, a number of promising talents from the SA Emerging squad – including Nondumiso Shangase, Delmi Tucker and Leah Jones – will train with the Proteas players who travelled to the World Cup.
Five contracted players – Shabnim Ismail, Laura Wolvaardt, Ayabonga Khaka, Sune Luus and Marizanne Kapp – will miss the camp due to their involvement in the inaugural FairBreak Invitational in Dubai.
Mignon du Preez will also be absent having recently retired from ODI and Test cricket.
Captain Dane van Niekerk will briefly join the squad for a medical assessment as she continues to recover from an ankle injury that ruled her out of the World Cup, while all-rounder Anneke Bosch returns from the thumb injury.
