Cape Town - Aiden Markram will lead the South Africa 'A' side in their two four-day matches against India 'A' later this month.

Markram is currently in England with the Standard Bank Proteas team. The squad to play India A also includes two other members of the test squad, all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo and fast bowler Duanne Olivier.

Stephen Cook also returns to the SA 'A' squad.

The one newcomer at this level is the Multiply Titans legspinner, Shaun von Berg.

“This is a very important series after the disappointing test match against the England Lions earlier this year,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Linda Zondi. “This is a golden opportunity for the players to show what they can do under conditions they know well against testing opposition.”

SA A squad: Aiden Markram (Multiply Titans, capt), Stephen Cook (bizhub Highveld Lions), Junior Dala (Multiply Titans), Beuran Hendricks (bizhub Highveld Lions), Heinrich Klaasen (Multiply Titans), David Miller (VKB Knights), Duanne Olivier (VKB Knights), Dane Paterson (WSB Cape Cobras), Andile Phehlukwayo (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), Dane Piedt (WSB Cape Cobras), Omphile Ramela (bizhub Highveld Lions), Rudi Second (VKB Knights), Jason Smith (WSB Cape Cobras), Shaun von Berg (Multiply Titans), Khaya Zondo (Hollywoodbets Dolphins)
