Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday named an unchanged Proteas squad for the one-off Test match against Zimbabwe next month.

“The Proteas have earned a vote of confidence,” commented CSA selection convener Andrew Hudson.

“We will be naming the ODI squad for the three-match series against Zimbabwe next week and will give consideration to resting a couple of players. We will, however, be sending our full-strength ODI squad for the following triangular series against Zimbabwe and Australia.”

The Proteas on Monday drew the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo which earned them a 1-0 series win. It also saw them return to the No 1 ranking in Test cricket.

The one-ff Test against Zimbabwe in Harare starts on Saturday, August 9.

Proteas Test squad: Hashim Amla (Cape Cobras, captain), AB de Villiers (Titans, vice-captain), Kyle Abbott (Dolphins), Quinton de Kock (Highveld Lions), JP Duminy (Cape Cobras), Faf du Plessis (Titans), Dean Elgar (Titans), Imran Tahir (Dolphins), Morné Morkel (Titans), Wayne Parnell (Warriors), Alviro Petersen (Highveld Lions), Vernon Philander (Cape Cobras), Dane Piedt (Cape Cobras), Dale Steyn (Cape Cobras), Stiaan van Zyl (Cape Cobras).
