Ahead of the final two One-Day Internationals (ODI) against England, the Momentum Proteas have included Masabata Klaas and Delmi Tucker in the squad.

The two players have arrived in the United Kingdom and will join the team in Bristol before the second ODI at the County Ground on Friday.

The inclusion of Klaas comes as welcomed news after the 31-year-old completed her rehabilitation from a shoulder injury that ruled her out of last month’s tour to Ireland as well as the once-off Test match against England.

Meanwhile, Tucker receives a show of faith after impressing in her first two caps in international cricket as South Africa wrapped up a 3-0 series victory against the Irish in Dublin.

Momentum Proteas head coach, Hilton Moreeng commented: “Masabata Klaas and Delmi Tucker have now been recalled to the squad. The two players will serve as backup in the departments we have a couple of niggles, which is normal during back-to-back tours.

“They are going to bring a lot of freshness into the squad and add a lot of value in their disciplines, so for us a squad we welcome them back and we are looking forward to the rest of the tour,” the coach concluded.
