South Africa announced a 16-member squad for the upcoming T20Is against England, with 15 of those players forming the squad for the Women’s T20 competition in the Commonwealth games. 

Sune Luus will lead the team with regular skipper Dane van Niekerk proceeding with her recovery from an ankle fracture sustained earlier this year. 

Mignon du Preez, who announced her retirement from the Test and ODI formats, also gets back to the side after missing the series against Ireland in June.

After the T20I series against England, the squad, except the uncapped Delmi Tucker, will travel to Birmingham for the Commonwealth games.

Clinton du Preez said the presence of Mignon would allow the side to be flexible strategically with their batting.

Proteas will face England in three-match T20I series on July 21, 23, and 25 before overseeing to Birmingham for the games.

“With key players not available, we remain very excited to compete in the Commonwealth Games. Having Mignon du Preez adds experience to the squad and allows for some strategic changes in the batting line-up,”

Clinton du Preez said in a statement.

“It once again allows the opportunity for players to showcase their skills, as post the Games we prepare for the home T20 World Cup, and the team has the capabilities to finish within the medals. We could not have asked for a better opportunity to prepare for these Games, with the tour of Ireland and also against England. It has allowed for much rotation and opportunities to players,”

he added.

“We would like to take that momentum into the Games and have the players in a positive space as we compete.”
