South Africa veteran cricketers, Imran Tahir and Faf Du Plessis have been sidelined from the T20 World Cup squad despite their wish to represent the realm in the event before announcing their retirement.
Du Plessis, who is still part of South Africa’s white-ball cricket, retired from Test cricket recently. It must be a huge disappointment for him for not meeting his expectations and now may or may not wait for farewell ‘after’ participating in World Cup.
Similarly, Imran, one of the anticipated contestants in proteas Wt20 squad, retired from ODI latterly. Still being T20Is part, he wanted to make it to this year’s World Cup before announcing his retirement from the format.
Moreover, Chris Morris, the terrific all-rounder, also has not been named in South Africa Wt20 squad.
Temba Bavuma, who was pulled out from the Sri Lanka series following his injury, will recover in a shorter course to get back to the field leading his team with a high desire of winning the trophy.
South Africa squad: Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Wiaan Mulder, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Radaba, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen
Reserves: George Linde, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lizaad Williams
