Durban, Dec 29: Hashim Amla was Wednesday recalled to South Africa’s Twenty20 squad for the one-off match against India Jan 9 while Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel were rested from the 12-member squad.
Amla, considered a Test batsman, will be playing only his third Twenty20 match. He last played in the shortest-version of the game at the international level against Australia in 2009.
“We have decided to rest Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel because of the heavy workload they have had in the Castle Test series and the important roles they will have to play in the MTN ODI series against India as well as in the ICC Cricket World Cup,” Convener of selectors Andrew Hudson said.
The match will be played at Moses Mabhida football stadium in Durban.
