Off-form Hashim Amla makes South Africa ICC World Cup 2019 squad

Hashim Amla in World Cup squad; Reeza Hendricks, Chris Morris miss out

The team will be led by Faf du Plessis and he will have plenty of bowling options as Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Dale Steyn, Anrich Nortje and Dwaine Pretorius have been included in the squad. Amla has been an accomplished player for the South African team, as he has scored nearly 8000 runs in the ODI format at an average of just 49.75.

"We felt that when we looked at our mix of batsmen and bowlers, the candidates that could've staked a claim to be a reserve keeper didn't perform up to standard", said Zondi. "In the Sri Lanka series we gave him the gloves to make sure that if anything happens to Quinton de Kock within the World Cup, Miller can fit in and play that role".

"We just need to go there and hope (for) a bit of luck - weather, a missed no-ball - goes your way, and you could win the tournament". Both players are expected to return to full fitness in time for the ICC event.

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.

Ignored at the IPL auctions previous year, the South African pace great has been roped in as a replacement for injured Nathan Coulter-Nile. "We understand one catch can lose us the World Cup, but if anything happens, we can call up another keeper", said Zondi.

"When CSA appointed Ottis Gibson, he came with his own philosophy. But to be honest with you, I just love playing cricket", said Steyn.

Asked to pick a side apart from South Africa that could win the tournament, Steyn said "every team" had a chance, and that rankings wouldn't matter once the tournament begins.

Editorial team of CricketCountry. We're confident, looking at his philosophy and the kind of players we've picked.

"I am also very happy to announce that two of our fast bowlers now on the injured list, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje, are well on the way to recovery and we expect them to be ready for our pre-tournament camp next month".
