The South African Cricket Board announced on Monday that South Africa have named 23 players for their 2019 World T20 team, which will play in the World T15 and World T16.
Their squad, with seven new additions, includes nine batsmen and six bowlers, with their first XI expected to include: Rohan Narayanan (captain), Ravi Shastri, Dwayne Bravo, Samuels Brathwaite, David Miller, Brendon McCullum, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh and Cameron Bancroft.
The squad will be made up of nine players in the XI of the 2019 South Africa World T19 team, as they play India in their World Cup opener.
Captain and skipper Rohan Nashar is the leading candidate for the captaincy, with Ravi Hashim and Brad Haddin also in the mix.
Former South Africa opener Nathan Coulter-Nile is also expected to be part of the squad, as he has a contract with the team.
