The Proteas are hoping to turn the tables on India ahead of their tour later this month as they head to “Spin Camp”.
CSA on Monday announced a group of players plus the coaches and technical staff who will be travelling to Bangaluru from August 17 to 23 to sharpen up their bowling and batting for their battle against the hosts in September.
Both Proteas and South Africa A stars have been included as well as Cape Cobras coaches past and present in Paul Adams and Ashwell Prince.
CSA CEO Thabang Moroe says: “We have identified Aiden Markram, Zubayr Hamza and Temba Bavuma as key Proteas batsmen to benefit from this project and we have also included some of our potential stars of the future such as Janneman Malan and Sinethemba Qeshile, who have already both played for the Proteas, as well as Matthew Breetzke.
“The bowling group is headed by the experience of Dane Piedt and includes highly promising talents, among them being Bjorn Fortuin, Tsepo Ndwandwa and Senuran Muthusamy.”
Meanwhile, Rassie van der Dussen has been rewarded with a CSA contract for his stellar form since making his debut this year.
Moroe adds: “Rassie’s promotion is thoroughly justified on the back of a brilliant debut season at international level.”
