Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday announced the 15-man Coca-Cola South Africa Under-19 team that will take on Bangladesh from 29 June to 21 July 2015 in a seven-match, Youth One-Day International series in Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

The tour forms part of the reciprocal agreement between CSA and the Bangladesh Cricket Board, following South Africa’s tour to the subcontinent country earlier this year.

It also forms part of South Africa’s preparations for the ICC U19 World Cup that will take place in Bangladesh in January 2016.

The junior Proteas will be led by Tony de Zorzi of Gauteng, whose performances on the field and leadership skills off it convinced selectors that he is the right man for the job. He will be joined by recent CSA Awards Breakfast winners, Aaqil Ebrahim (CSA U17 Player of the Year) and Dean Foxcroft (Coca-Cola Schools T20 Player of the Year).

SA U19s coach, Lawrence Mahatlane said: “I’m looking forward to a new challenge and with a bit of experience starting to build up in the squad, I’m excited to see the growth of this group. We’re looking forward to get to Durban in a couple of weeks and getting down to business with a really excited and motivated group of players.”

THE PLAYERS ARE: Tony de Zorzi (capt, Gauteng), Ziyaad Abrahams (WP), Aaqil Ebrahim (WP), Dean Foxcroft (Northerns), Dayyaan Galiem (WP), Brendon Glover (Gauteng), Conor McKerr (Gauteng), Nduduzo Mfoza (KZN), Rivaldo Moonsamy (Northerns), Wiaan Mulder (Gauteng), Kabelo Sekhukhune (Easterns), Lutho Sipamla (EP), Liam Smith (Gauteng), Kyle Verryne (WP) and Sean Whitehead (Free State).
