Cape Town - Faf du Plessis' impressive international career gained fresh momentum on Thursday when Cricket South Africa (CSA) named him as captain of the Proteas squad for the three-match T20 series against New Zealand later this month.

“AB de Villiers remains our first-choice captain in this format,” commented CSA selection convener Andrew Hudson, “but AB is one of the players we need to rotate in the interest of his workload across all three formats and we want to have one captain for the entire series.”

“I believe we have chosen an extremely exciting squad of 15 players which will enable us both to rotate senior players and to provide opportunity to a new group of players,” Hudson said.

“This squad is a reflection of the tremendous depth that is developing in our franchise cricket. Even without some of our senior Proteas and the inclusion of a number of new caps there is still a good deal of experience in this squad.”

Proteas Twenty20 squad:

Faf du Plessis (captain), Farhaan Behardien, Henry Davids, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Rory Kleinveldt, Richard Levi, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Robin Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think this very different looking Proteas Twenty20 squad will be good enough to beat the visiting New Zealanders? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
