Cape Town - Injury has caused Lwandiswa Zuma to withdraw from the South Africa Invitation XI to play Bangladesh in a three-day tour match at Willowmoore from September 21 to 23.

He will be replaced by SA under-19 wicketkeeper/batsman, Matthew Breetzke.

Breetzke is currently playing for the Warriors in pre-season matches against the Cape Cobras at Oudtshoorn.

Meanwhile, Aiden Markram of the Titans will lead the South Africa Invitation XI.
