Aiden Markram has been named the new captain of South Africa’s Twenty20 International side with former skipper Temba Bavuma axed from the squad to face the West Indies in three matches later this month.
Bavuma will instead concentrate on his role as test and one day international skipper, with Wednesday’s second five-day game against the touring Caribbean side to be followed by three ODIs between March 16 and 21.
Fast bowlers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have been rested for those matches but will return for the T20 games that will be played from March 25-28.
ODI squad (first two matches): Temba Bavuma (captain), Gerald Coetzee, Quinton de Kock, Tony de Zorzi, Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Sisanda Magala, Keshav Maharaj, Wiaan Mulder, Lungi Ngidi, Ryan Rickelton, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tristan Stubbs, Lizaad Williams, Rassie van der Dussen.
