South Africa Women Squad for Pakistan Tour

South Africa will announce a new captain soon ahead of the Pakistan tour which will consist of three T20Is and three ODIs. The ODIs will be a part of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25 cycle.

The squad bears a similar resemblance, with 12 of the 15 players who were a part of their memorable T20 World Cup campaign retained. Luus led the side during South Africa’s brilliant run to the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 Final on home soil, where the Proteas lost to Australia.

Chloe Tryon was the notable miss on the squad who has requested a leave of absence. On the other hand, Annerie Dercksen will also miss the series as she recovers from her finger injury.

All-rounder Nondumiso Shangase, who last featured for South Africa in 2021, is also included in the squad. All the matches of the South Africa Women’s tour of Pakistan 2023 will be played in Karachi, with the T20Is being played between September 1 to 5. This will be followed by the ODI series between September 8 to 14.

On the other hand, Nida Dar has been named as the captain of the Pakistan Women’s squad for both the ODI and T20I series. All-rounder Natalia Parvaiz, who last turned out for Pakistan in 2018, is back in the T20I side and is also named as a reserve player in the ODI squad.

Leg-spinner Syeda Aroob Shah who last featured for Pakistan in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2020 made a comeback in the T20I squad after more than three years.
