Amla edges out Hendricks in South Africa’s World Cup squad

South Africa announced their squad on Thursday and it’s largely goes by as predicted.

Amla, 36, will be playing in his third World Cup despite a poor run of recent form.


He was selected ahead of opening batsman Reeza Hendricks, who played in 18 consecutive one-day internationals before being dropped for the country´s most recent match against Sri Lanka in March.

The biggest gainer is the pacer A Nortje who has had an impressive debut recently.

The selectors have made it clear that the racial quota will not work for the World Cup, eight white players were selected. CSA has an official target of black players making up 55 percent of teams.

Here’s the squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wkt), JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Dale Steyn, Rassie van der Dussen.
