Durban - Hashim Amla has been called up to the Proteas’ squad for the Pro20 match against India to be played at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday, January 9.

The match is the inaugural one for the Krish Mackerdhuj Trophy and commemorates the first arrival of Indians in South Africa 150 years ago.

It will be Amla’s third cap in this format. He takes the place of Loots Bosman from the squad that won their last series 2-0 against Pakistan.

The selectors have named a squad of 12 for the match. It includes Makhaya Ntini who will be making his final international appearance for the Proteas.

“We have decided to rest Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel because of the heavy workload they have had in the Test series and the important roles they will have to play in the ODI series against India as well as in the Cricket World Cup,” commented convener of selectors Andrew Hudson.

South Africa Pro20 squad:

Johan Botha (captain), Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Colin Ingram, David Miller, Makhaya Ntini, Wayne Parnell, Robin Peterson, Graeme Smith, Rusty Theron, Lonwabo Tsotsobe
