Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Monday announced the ODI and T20I squads with Aiden Markram named Proteas T20I captain to take over from Temba Bavuma. CSA also confirmed the coaching appointments for the white-ball series against West Indies later this month.

The 28-year-old Markram takes over from Temba Bavuma, who stepped down as T20I captain last month. Markram has a wealth of leadership experience having previously led South Africa at Under-19 level earlier in his career and also captained at provincial and franchise level as well. Most recently, he led Sunrisers Eastern Cape to the inaugural Betway SA20 title.

Other notable selections include DP World Lions Bjorn Fortuin, and his Lions teammate, all-rounder Sisanda Magala.

Four uncapped players have been named in the squad with ITEC Knights fast bowler Gerald Coetzee, Six Gun Grill Western Province batter Tony de Zorzi and Dafabet Warriors batter Tristan Stubbs earning their maiden ODI call-ups.

DP World Lions batter Ryan Rickelton makes his return to the ODI setup following an impressive One-Day Cup campaign which saw the left-hander finish the leading run-scorer with 452 runs at an average of 64,57, including two hundreds and as many fifties.
