Springbok captain Jean de Villiers will lead a Bok-laden team in the T20 Challenge match against the Proteas.

The match will take place on Friday, 3 January, at Newlands cricket grounds, and will feature the likes of Willem Alberts, Bismarck du Plessis, Butch James, Fabian Juries, Tiaan Liebenberg, Willie le Roux, Victor Matfield, Frans Steyn, Flip van der Merwe, and Franco van der Merwe.

‘We are really looking forward to this historic match,’ said De Villiers. ‘We are all very keen cricket supporters and we would like to urge everyone to come out to Newlands and share in a fun evening and cheer on your favourite team.’

Former Springbok captain Bob Skinstad has been appointed as manager of the Springbok XI.

‘This is a very talented group of men and I’m really excited to see how they perform against some of the top cricketers in the world,’ said Skinstad.
