South Africa name three uncapped players for test tour of India

CAPE TOWN, Tuesday - South Africa have named three uncapped players in their test squad for the three-match tour of India in early October as they begin life without retired veterans Dale Steyn and Hashim Amla.

Fast bowler Anrich Nortje, wicketkeeper/batsman Rudi Second and spin bowling all-rounder Senuran Muthusamy have been included in the 15-man selection that will be captained by Faf du Plessis. It will be led by interim team director Enoch Nkwe, filling the role after the decision not to renew the contract of West Indian coach Ottis Gibson.

South Africa will start the tour with the limited overs matches, the first of which is in Dharamsala on Sept. 15.

That will be followed by tests in Visakhapatnam (Oct. 2-6), Ranchi (Oct. 10-14) and Pune (Oct. 19-23), which are the first for South Africa in the newly-formed ICC Test Championship.

TEST SQUAD: Faf du Plessis (Titans, capt), Temba Bavuma (Highveld Lions, vice-capt), Theunis de Bruyn (Titans), Quinton de Kock (Titans), Dean Elgar (Titans), Zubayr Hamza (Cape Cobras), Keshav Maharaj (Dolphins), Aiden Markram (Titans), Senuran Muthusamy (Dolphins), Lungi Ngidi (Titans), Anrich Nortje (Warriors), Vernon Philander (Cape Cobras), Dane Piedt (Cape Cobras), Kagiso Rabada (Highveld Lions), Rudi Second (Warriors). - Agencies
