Johannesburg - Netball South Africa (NSA) on Sunday announced an experienced South African team for a three-Test series in Jamaica next month.

"We need to have an experienced team to play against a team like Jamaica," explained coach Elize Kotze.

"Three of our very experienced players Adele Niemand, Claudia Basson and Karla Mostert were not available for selection because of work commitments and injury.

"This has given us the opportunity to bring in some younger players."

The three newcomers to the squad are Annemarie Frost, Anaret Viljoen and Mampho Tsotetsi

Jamaica are ranked fourth in the world, and to play them at home is going to be tough.

"We have spent time watching the video of our match against them at the World Championships in Singapore last year where they beat us 74-45," Kotze said.

"I think we know more about the Jamaican players than they know about us."

Team: Amanda Mynhardt (captain), Zanele Mdodana (Vice-Captain), Chrisna Bootha, Anaret Viljoen, Annemarie Frost, Bongiwe Msomi, Erin Burger, Mampho Tsotetsi, Maryka Holtzhausen, Nokuthula Qegu, Vanes-Mari du Toit, Precious Mthembu.

Non-travelling reserves: Melissa Myburgh, Zukelwa Cwaba.
