Cape Town - Yaseen Valli of Gauteng will captain the South Africa under-19 squad to take part in a quadrangular tournament in India in September.

The other competing teams will be the hosts, Australia and Zimbabwe.

Valli is yet another product of King Edward VII High School in Johannesburg to feature prominently in South African cricket.

An all-rounder, he is one of eight players who took part in last season’s home ODI series against England which the South Africans won 5-0.

This tournament will serve as ideal preparation ahead of next year’s ICC under-19 World Cup to be played under similar conditions in the United Arab Emirates.

Dayyaan Galiem of Western Province joins a select group of players that includes Wayne Parnell and Shaylin Pillay to make his international debut at this level at the age of 16.

The squad contains a significant number of all-rounders, so there should be good batting depth most of the way down the order.

SA under-19 squad:

Yaseen Valli (Gauteng, captain), Corbin Bosch (Northerns), Lloyd Brown (EP), Bradley Dial (Gauteng), Justin Dill (Boland), Clyde Fortuin (WP), Dayyaan Galiem (WP), Aiden Markram (Northerns), Lungisano Ngidi (KZN Inland), Sine Ntshona (Free State), Greg Oldfield (KZN Inland), Kagiso Rabada (Gauteng), Ngazibini Sigwili (Border), Jason Smith (WP), Hayes van der Berg (WP).

Management: Morgan Pillay (manager), Ray Jennings (head coach), Enoch Nkwe (assistant coach), Greg Smith (assistant coach), Megan Dutton (physiotherapist)
