Wiese, van Wyk Recalled for New Zealand Series

Morne van Wyk has been recalled to the Proteas limited overs squads in place of Quinton de Kock for both T20 and ODI series against New Zealand later this month while David Wiese is in line to win his first cap in the ODI format.

The Oxigen Proteas will play two KFC T20 International matches against the Black Caps while the Castle Lager Proteas will play three Momentum ODIs.

Other features of the first squads to be named under the leadership of new selection convener, Linda Zondi, are the return of AB de Villiers from paternity leave while both JP Duminy and Morne Morkel have been given leave of absence for the ODI Series for the same reason. They will, however, both play in the T20 International Series.

Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander also return to ODI duty after missing the series in Bangladesh. Imran Tahir will play the ODI Series against New Zealand but not the T20 where a further opportunity is being given to Eddie Leie who had an outstanding debut against Bangladesh.

Castle Lager Proteas ODI squad: AB de Villiers (capt), Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Aaron Phangiso, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Dale Steyn, Morne van Wyk (wk), David Wiese
