Cricket South Africa named their final 15-man Standard Bank Pro20 squad yesterday for the ICC World T20 in England next month.

The squad consists in the main of the players who won the two Pro20 Internationals against Australia earlier this year and contains no new caps.

"Our cricket is entering an exciting period," commented selection chief Mike Procter.

"The players are all in good form and it is particularly pleasing to have so many quality all-rounders at our disposal.

"As always, there are a couple of unlucky players and that emphasises the excellent competition we have for places."

"I am delighted with the squad," commented national coach Mickey Arthur. "It is a team with plenty of options - great depth to the batting and plenty of bowling options. It is also an outstanding fielding unit."

Proteas Pro20 International squad: Graeme Smith (capt), Johan Botha, Yusuf Abdulla, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, Justin Ontong, Wayne Parnell, Robbie Peterson, Dale Steyn, Roelof van der Merwe. - Sapa
