South Africa's Tabraiz Shamsi earns ODI call-up

Left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi has been called up by South Africa's ODI squad for next month's triangular series against the West Indies and Australia.

The convener of selectors Linda Zondi stated,



Tabraiz has certainly earned his call-up following outstanding form both in our domestic cricket and in some of the major domestic T20 leagues including the Caribbean Premier League.



Dale Steyn is being rested for the tri-series in order to be fit for the test series against New Zealand in August as well as for the series against Australia and Sri Lanka later in the year.

Faf du Plessis has been included in the squad despite a broken finger, suffered in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). He was flown to South Africa immediately and underwent a surgery for the finger. 

He is expected to return to action for South Africa's second match of the triangular series against Australia in Guyana on June 7.

AB de Villiers (captain), Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi.
