Cape Town - The final members of the Proteas’ Castle Lager ODI Squad have arrived in Auckland New Zealand, ahead of the National Bank One-Day International Series starting in Wellington on Saturday.

Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Faf du Plessis will team up with the ODI squad at the end of the T20 International series, with Rusty Theron, Colin Ingram and Richard Levi returning home as per originally selected.

“ We are delighted with the way the T20I squad has progressed throughout this series and it is exciting to see the momentum that is being built for the remainder of the series,” said Convenor of Selectors, Andrew Hudson. “It has been encouraging to see how the youngsters like Richard (Levi) and Marchant (de Lange) have stepped up to the challenges of International cricket, ahead of a very important year for the squad.

“Levi’s batting performance was fantastic, one of the best I have watched and we hope that he can continue in the same way for the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras in the Miway T20 Challenge back home. He is an exciting prospect for us and he will be monitored and nurtured accordingly, his time will come.”
