George Linde called up for Proteas ODI series in India - Sports Leo

Left-arm spinner, George Linde has received his maiden call-up into the SA One-Day International (ODI) team ahead of their tour to India from March 12 to 17.

It will consist of a three-match ODI series taking place in Dharamsala, Lucknow and Kolkata.

The 15-man squad also sees the return of rested players, Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen to bolster the batting line-up as well as the retention of the newcomer, Kyle Verreynne who impressed selectors with his score of 48 off 64 on debut against Australia in Paarl over the weekend.

Keshav Maharaj and Lutho Sipamla are also among the retained players, the latter having the added excitement of a maiden outbound international tour.

Tabraiz Shamsi was not available for selection as he and his wife Khadija are expecting the birth of their first-born child.

CSA Independent Selector, Linda Zondi said: “It is exciting to see the amount of competition for spots that we have within the team and in the franchises, it’s a good headache for us as selectors to have,” he commented.

“We are satisfied with our picks for what will certainly be a challenging tour of India. We saw some promising performances last year from the T20 squad that travelled there and we wanted to give a player like George Linde another crack at the conditions which seemed to really suit him.

“We are also particularly pleased with the balance of youth and experience that we have achieved while our young leadership group continues to establish itself. We are looking forward to some good performances in this relatively short tour,” Zondi concluded.

SA squad: Quinton de Kock (captain, wicketkeeper,), Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, Kyle Verreynne, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Jon-Jon Smuts, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lundi Ngidi, Lutho Sipamla, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje, George Linde, Keshav Maharaj.
