Cape Town - Dane Vilas and Dean Elgar have been named respective South Africa 'A' captains for the four-day and 50-overs teams ahead of their tour to India in July and August.

The Cobras duo of fast bowler, Dane Paterson, and batsman, Omphile Ramela, and Dolphins spinner, Keshav Maharaj, have all been rewarded for their excellent form in the past season’s Sunfoil Series by earning call-ups for the four-day team.

Ramela made 724 runs at an average of 42 while Paterson (42) and Maharaj (36) were among the leading wicket-takers.

Another newcomer is Cameron Delport of the Dolphins who has been selected for the limited overs squad.

South Africa will play a triangular limited overs series against India 'A' and Australia 'A' in which each team will play one another twice plus the top two going through to the final and this will be followed by two four-day unofficial ‘Test’ matches against India 'A'.

“A number of relative newcomers to the Proteas have been included in the South Africa A squads and, with the Proteas due to tour India later this year, this tour will give them invaluable experience of Indian playing conditions,” commented South Africa 'A' coach, Vincent Barnes.
