INJURY has caused Lwandiswa Zuma to withdraw from the South Africa Invitation XI to play Bangladesh in a three-day tour match at Sahara Park Willowmoore from September 21 to 23. He will be replaced by SA under-19 wicketkeeper/batsman, Matthew Breetzke.

Breetzke is currently playing for the Warriors in pre-season matches against the WSB Cape Cobras at Oudtshoorn.

“This is a good opportunity and a wonderful experience for a player who is currently part of our under-19 programme,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) National Selection Panel convener Linda Zondi.

Revised SA Invitation XI squad: Aiden Markram (Multiply Titans, capt), Tladi Bokako (Warriors), Matthew Breetzke (Warriors), Okuhle Cele (KZN), Matthew Christensen (EP), Michael Cohen (WP), Isaac Dikgale (North West), Zubayr Hamsa (WSB Cape Cobras), Heinrich Klaasen (Multiply Titans), Migael Pretorius (Northerns), Yaseen Valli (Gauteng), Shaun von Berg (Multiply Titans).
