JP Duminy has returned to the South African ODI squad for the ICC Champions Trophy tournament to be held in England and Wales at the start of next month. Jacques Kallis has, however, made himself unavailable for personal reasons, according to a media release on Thursday. AB De Villiers will be the captain of the squad that also has Test skipper Graeme Smith.
It will be Duminy's first selection since he suffered a severe ankle injury during the first Test match against Australia six months ago.
"JP is well on the way to a full recovery," commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Andrew Hudson. "The latest information is that he will be fully fit to play his part in all three disciplines by the end of the month. He is a very experienced limited overs cricketer and we don't anticipate his lack of match practice being any kind of problem.
