Summary

  • Cape Town – Chris Morris makes his return from injury for the Proteas for the three-match ODI Series and the one-off T20 International to be played against Australia ‘down under’ at the end of this month.
  • Morris was sidelined by injury for the most recent series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe but had been a regular selection for the Proteas in white-ball cricket previously, having played in 14 ODIs in 2017 and all five against India at the start of this year.
  • “With Wiaan Mulder ruled out at the moment through injury we need to look at our resources as far as batting all-rounder options are concerned and Dwaine, in particular, fits into this category.
  • “We have also lost a lot of experience in our specialist batting order through the injuries to Hashim Amla and JP Duminy, and Farhaan gives us another experienced option in the top order.
  • “We feel that we got quite a lot out of the Zimbabwe series, notably the form of Imran Tahir and the return of Dale Steyn to his very best.
