The South African team has been announced for the ODI and T20 series against England. Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is back in the team. At the same time, seamer Glenton Sterman got a place in the team for the first time.
This series against one-day champions England is important
Graeme Smith, Director of South African Cricket (CSA) said that this series is very important for us, because T20 World Cup is to be held in India next year. He said, “I hope viewers will get to see some good performances in this series.” Smith said that England are one-day champions, so the one-day series against them is even more important.
Kagiso Rabada was dropped from the team due to injury
This is the first international series of the South African team since the beginning of the Corona era. Please tell that in March this year, the South African team visited India. But the series was canceled because of Corona. In this series, Rabada was not included in the team due to groin injury.
Rabada is currently playing in the IPL with the Delhi Capitals team and is in excellent form. He has taken 25 wickets in the tournament so far.

Quinton Dickock (captain, wicketkeeper), Temba Bavuma, Jr. Dala, Faf du Plessis, Björn Fortuin, Buran Hendricks, Reza Hendricks, Henrik Klassen, George Linde, Keshav Maharaj, Janaman Malan David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Enrich Nortje, Adele Fehlukwa, Dwayne Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabrez Shamsi, Lutho Cipamla, John-John Smuts, Glenton Sterman, PV Villjon, Rosie van der Dussen, Kyle Verrin
