South Africa announce squads for England T20Is, CWG 2022

South Africa T20I Squad Against England: South Africa named a 16-member squad for the upcoming T20Is against England, with 15 of those players forming the squad for the Women’s T20 competition in the Commonwealth Games.

Dane van Niekerk, the regular captain of team England, is still in her rehabilitation from an ankle fracture she suffered earlier this year. In her absence, Sune Luus will serve as the team’s captain.

Mignon du Preez, who announced her retirement from the Test and ODI formats, is also back in the lineup after remaining out of action against Ireland in June.

The team will fly to Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games following the three-match series against England.

The inclusion of Mignon will enable the team to be tactically flexible with their batting, said the convenor of selectors Clinton du Preez.

“With key players not available, we remain very excited to compete in the Commonwealth Games. Having Mignon du Preez adds experience to the squad and allows for some strategic changes in the batting line-up,” Clinton du Preez said in a statement.

“It once again allows the opportunity for players to showcase their skills, as post the Games we prepare for the home T20 World Cup, and the team has the capabilities to finish within the medals. We could not have asked for a better opportunity to prepare for these Games, with the tour of Ireland and also against England. It has allowed for much rotation and opportunities to players,” he added.

The series between England and South Africa will commence on July 21 with 3 T20s on July 21, 23, and 25 before heading to Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games.
