Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Rilee Rossouw will make his return to South Africa in the Mzansi Super League next week.

Rossouw, who signed a Kolpak deal for Hampshire, will replace Zimbabwe batsman Sean Williams at the Tshwane Spartans for first weekend due to Zimbabwe's tour of Bangladesh, which ends on November 15.

Williams, who was bought for R350 000, will also need to travel to Harare for VISA application.

Rossouw left South Africa in January 2017 when he accepted a Kolpak deal at Hampshire alongside former Proteas seamer Kyle Abbott - who will be playing for the Durban Heat.

Cape Town Blitz have also made two changes as Pakistan's Muhammad Nawaz replaces the injured Samuel Badree and Hussain Tallat of Pakistan will replace Asif Ali while he's on T20 duty.
