Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Sunday announced two changes to the Proteas One-Day International squad that is due to play Sri Lanka in a three-match ICC Women’s Championship series from 11-17 February in Potchefstroom.

Suné Luus has been called up to replace Lizelle Lee while Nadine de Klerk has been brought in for the injured Chloe Tryon. Both players impressed the selectors during the recently concluded three-match T20 international series where South Africa completed a whitewash over the visitors. Luus received back-to-back Player of the Match accolades for her dominance with the ball and sway with the bat, while De Klerk proved her all-round capabilities throughout the series.
