Newcomers set for South Africa bow

December 19, 2012 16:24:59 UK

South Africa plan to utilise their entire 15-man squad in the forthcoming Twenty20 series against New Zealand.

The Proteas, whose form in the shortest format of the game lags behind that of Test and one-day cricket, have some new faces in their squad for the three-match campaign.

And Russell Domingo, South Africa's Twenty20 coach, will give players like Lions trio Chris Morris, Quinton de Kock and Aaron Phangiso and Titans all-rounder Henry Davids debuts.

There will also be recalls for explosive batsmen Richard Levi and David Miller.

"Rotating the players - that's the plan," Domingo said. "We have 15 players; Dale Steyn will play on Friday and probably miss the last two, and Morne Morkel will come in and play after that so everybody is going to get some sort of game time in the series.

"That is important for me in widening our base and giving guys an opportunity to perform at this level."

Davids, 32, has been selected on some sensational domestic form, following his impressive displays in the Champions League.

He recently struck 166 against the Knights in a 50-over contest while Levi blasted the same score against Davids and Co for the Cape Cobras.

That pair are set to be thrown together at the top of the order for the opening match against the Black Caps in Durban on Friday.

Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Phangiso will be a key component of a new-look attack.

The 28-year-old was stunning during the Champions League, taking 10 wickets and boasting an economy rate of just 5.36 in six matches for runners-up the Lions.

South Africa are 1.015 to win the T20 series, with New Zealand 12.00.
