A newly-fit As South Africa revealed their 15-player roster for the T20 World Cup in Australia this year, Rassie van der Dussen was ruled out due to a fractured left index finger, but Temba Bavuma made a full recovery from an elbow injury. Due to an elbow ailment, Bavuma missed the whole England trip; however, the right-hander has fully recovered and will represent South Africa in the global competition. Van van Dussen, who shattered his left index finger during the second Test against England, had surgery and won’t be able to pick up a cricket bat for at least another month.

“Temba has made a full recovery. He has spent the past week playing with the Lions in Namibia, and he is ready to travel “CSA’s convener of selectors, Victor Mpitsang, said at a news conference. “We all know that Rassie fractured his finger a week ago. He had surgery. He won’t be fully healed for up to six weeks. Unfortunately, his injuries did not occur at the ideal moment.”

The injured van der Dussen has been replaced in the South Africa team by left-handed attacking batter Rilee Rossouw. Marco Jansen has been pushed to the reserves by all-rounders Wayne Parnell and Dwaine Pretorious.

In addition to his performances with the new ball and at the end, Wayne offers us a distinct variety of forwards, according to Mpitsang. “Pretorius’ bowling style in the middle and the end stood out. Andile [Phehlukwayo] had a successful career. It’s a good idea to have a backup.”
