Seam bowler Migael Pretorius has been called up to the Proteas Test squad ahead of the Test Series against Sri Lanka starting on Boxing Day. This is the player’s first national call-up. 

The 25-year-old from Vereeniging has had an exceptional season so far in the Cricket South Africa (CSA) 4-Day Domestic Cup under the coaching of former Proteas paceman, Allan Donald. He is currently third on the tournament’s Leading Wicket Takers table with 19 scalps from five matches and best bowling figures of 7/102 against the Hollywoodbets Dolphins in their season opener last month.

“We’re pleased to include Migael in the Proteas Test squad for the Sri Lanka series. We’re big on rewarding consistently good work and the player has done a lot to make a case for himself. We hope that this experience will be a great learning one for him and that this can serve as encouragement for players across the country, showing them that their chances may not be as far off as they think,” CSA Convenor of Selectors, Victor Mpitsang said.

The Proteas will gather in Pretoria on December 19 to begin their preparation. 

Kagiso Rabada and Dwain Pretorius have not yet been medically cleared to participate in the tour.

Proteas Test squad against Sri Lanka:

Quinton de Kock (C), Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis, Beuran Hendricks, Dean Elgar, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Rassie van der Dussen, Sarel Erwee, Anrich Nortje, Glenton Stuurman, Wiaan Mulder, Keegan Petersen, Kyle Verreynne, Migael Pretorius.
