In the 15-player squad that will travel to Australia for the T20 World Cup, Marco Jansen was initially included in the reserves.
Lizaad Williams has been called up to replace Jansen in the travelling reserves.
“Marco Jansen has been selected for the #Proteas 15-man #T20WorldCup squad, replacing the injured Dwaine Pretorius. Among the travelling reserves, Lizaad Williams has been called up to replace Jansen.
During the recently concluded T20I series against India, the all-rounder played the third T20I and took 3/26 with the ball. That match was won by South Africa by 49 runs.
Due to the injury, he was ruled out of the ODI series against India after the T20I series.
Earlier this year, Jansen made his T20I debut during South Africa’s tour to India. As a result of his four overs, he trapped Shreyas Iyer lbw for his maiden wicket and was taken for 38 runs. So far, he has only played one T20I. Additionally, he has played seven Tests and three ODIs for South Africa.
Apart from Jansen, South Africa’s other seam-bowling options include Wayne Parnell, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi.
A qualifying side from the first round will face South Africa on October 24.
