Van Wyk recalled to South Africa’s T20 squad
Wicketkeeper-batsman Morne van Wyk has been recalled to South Africa’s squad for the three-match Twenty20 international series against the West Indies in place of the injured Quinton de Kock.
Van Wyk has not played for the Proteas since the 2011 World Cup, and his return suggests that he is the front-runner to keep wicket at the 2015 edition should De Kock fail to recover from an ankle injury in time.
Meanwhile, JP Duminy and Aaron Phangiso will make their comebacks from injury during the three-match series, which gets underway in Cape Town on Jan. 9.
Senior players Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel have been rested, but Faf du Plessis will resume the captaincy.
