Duminy named Proteas T20 skipper

JP Duminy will captain the Proteas for the first time after being named to lead the Twenty20 squad in three internationals against Australia in November.

The squad also includes three uncapped players — Knights batting pair Reeza Hendricks and Rilee Rossouw as well as Highveld Lions fast bowler Kagiso Rabada.

Titans paceman Marchant de Lange is set to play his first T20 game for over two years.

The one-day team, meanwhile, which is preparing for next year’s World Cup, is largely unchanged after their success on the recent tour to Zimbabwe, with Vernon Philander recalled.
