Sydney Sixers WBBL|02 Champions Dane Van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp are off to England and Wales for the 2017 Women's World Cup after their selection in the South African team.
Van Niekerk will captain her country at a 50-over World Cup for the first time, while Kapp is another mainstay of the national team set-up.
South Africa qualified for the Women's World Cup after making it to the final of the Qualifiers in February, where the Women's Proteas lost to India.
Coach Hilton Moreeng said he is satisfied with the squad selected and believes that they have the ability and capability to return home with the trophy, pointing out Captain Van Niekerk as key to their cause.
“This year’s squad, led by Van Niekerk has spent a lot of time together and we have a lot of game time under our belts,” Moreeng said.
“The balance in the side is just right and I know that the team can’t wait to get to England and test themselves against the world’s best sides."
