South Africa selects uncapped Shamsi, Dale Steyn left out

BY foxsports • May 6, 2016

JOHANNESBURG (AP) South Africa has called up uncapped left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi for next month's triangular limited-overs series in the Caribbean and rested fast bowler Dale Steyn amid concerns over his workload.

Shamsi is the only new player in the one-day international squad, although pace-bowling allrounder Wayne Parnell has been recalled for the first time in more than a year.

Head selector Linda Zondi says Steyn has been rested for the triangular series against West Indies and Australia to keep him fresh for the test season. South Africa, which lost its No. 1 ranking in tests with a home loss to England in January, has series against New Zealand, Australia and Sri Lanka this year.

Faf du Plessis is in the ODI squad for the Caribbean despite sustaining a broken finger in the IPL.
