Four of the five released Proteas have been called back into the camp ahead of the fourth and final Test match at the Wanderers starting on 24 January 2020.
Temba Bavuma, Beuran Hendricks, Keegan Petersen and Andile Phehlukwayo will join the team in Johannesburg on 21 January and will therefore be unavailable for selection for the next round of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Domestic Franchise Four-Day Series. Rudi Second will remain with the Warriors.
The players return to bolster the selectors’ options ahead of the final encounter.
