Cape Town - Omphile Ramela will lead the South African Invitation XI in the three-day tour match against Sri Lanka to be played at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom from December 18 to 20.
The match comes two days after the T20 Challenge final and before the Sunfoil Series resumes in January, assuring there is no clash with franchise cricket.
“We see this match as a wonderful opportunity to see what some of our younger players, who have shown good form in franchise cricket this season, can do against quality opposition,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Linda Zondi. “This is a good chance for these players to show what they can do at the next level.
“We have also included a number of provincial players who stood out in the Africa T20 Cup or for the SA academy team.
“It is important that these younger players have some experience to feed off and this will be provided by the likes of Ramela and Dane Piedt.”
SA Invitation XI squad: Omphile Ramela (Cape Cobras, captain), Aiden Markram (Titans), Leus du Plooy (Free State), Jason Smith (Cape Cobras), Khaya Zondo (Dolphins), Marques Ackerman (North West), Mangaliso Mosehle (Highveld Lions), Dane Piedt (Cape Cobras), Bjorn Fortuin (Highveld Lions), Lwandiswa Zuma (Knights), Duanne Olivier (Knights), Okuhle Cele (KZN)
