CRICKET- Spinners Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj have been named in South Africa’s squad for a five-match one-day international series in Sri Lanka that starts next month.

Fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander were not included in the squad.

“We are looking to broaden our talent pool,” selection convener Linda Zondi.

“Conditions in England are likely to be very different from those in Sri Lanka. We will be trying a lot of combinations before the World Cup.”

Imran Tahir, South Africa’s leading one-day spinner, was also not included in the squad.
