Johannesburg: South Africa picked uncapped fast bowler Beuran Hendricks on Monday for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh next month.
The 23-year-old left-arm seamer made his first squad after excelling in the domestic T20 competition and earning an IPL contract with Mumbai Indians. Big-hitting allrounder Albie Morkel was recalled for the 20-over World Cup having last played for South Africa in the previous World T20 in October 2012.
Faf du Plessis was captain of a 15-man squad that didn't contain former skipper Graeme Smith or allrounder Jacques Kallis. Smith no longer plays T20 cricket and Kallis retired from tests last year, when he said he will now focus on playing for the 50-over team in the hope of making that World Cup in 2015.
