Kagiso Rabada in South Africa

Kagiso Rabada, South African seamer will return to lead the Proteas' attack in their ODI and T20I series against England later this month.

Kagiso Rabada missed the last white-ball series of South Africa against India with a groin strain, was included in an expanded 24-man squad for the 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is that will be held on 27th November.

During the Indian Premier League, the 25-year-old dismissed any questions about his fitness, helping the Delhi Capitals progress to the play-offs.

For the first time, the Proteas - who have not played international cricket since the outbreak of Coronavirus in February, have called up uncapped seamer Glenton Stuurman, while Junior Dala returns from a long absence from injury.

The hosts will, like England, play intra-squad warm-up games for the 6 internationals, which take place in Paarl and Cape Town.

Graeme Smith, director of cricket for Cricket South Africa said that he is extremely proud of the hard work the CSA team has done to ensure the return of the Proteas men to international cricket."

He added that it's really pleasing that there is finally having an imminent international tour to look forward to on their shores, and he is sure, in particular, the T20 series will boast some explosive performances for fans of cricket to enjoy at home.
