Momentum Proteas skipper Dané van Niekerk will lead a 15-woman squad in three ODIs and five T20i’s away in the West Indies early in October, which will include three new caps in Eastern’s cricketer Tumi Sekhukhune (pictured) who joins her Powerade National Academy fellow graduates Saarah Smith and Robin Searle on tour.
