Abbott gets ODI call-up



Cricket South Africa on Wednesday added Kyle Abbott of the Sunfoil Dolphins to the Proteas Castle Lager squad for the five-match Momentum ODI series against Pakistan next month.

“Morne Morkel’s recovery from his hamstring injury is still a work in progress,” commented CSA selection convener Andrew Hudson, “and we consider it prudent to provide extra depth to our fast bowling resources.”

Abbott took 11 wickets in eight matches for the Dolphins during the Momentum One Day Cup, at an average of 22.72 and an economy rate of 5.03.

PROTEAS ODI SQUAD: AB de Villiers (Nashua Titans, capt), Kyle Abbott (Sunfoil Dolphins), Hashim Amla (Sunfoil Dolphins), Farhaan Behardien (Nashua Titans), Faf du Plessis (Nashua Titans), Colin Ingram (Chevrolet Warriors), Rory Kleinveldt (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Ryan McLaren (Chevrolet Knights), David Miller (Sunfoil Dolphins), Morne Morkel (Nashua Titans), Robin Peterson (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Aaron Phangiso (bizhub Highveld Lions), Graeme Smith (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Dale Steyn (Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras), Lonwabo Tsotsobe (Sunfoil Dolphins).
