New faces in England and South African squads, Ab de villers to captain.

After a disappointing ICC Champions Trophy exit, the Proteas will have to brush it off as they prepare for three T20Is against England which commences immediately after the conclusion of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament.


AB de Villiers will lead the side in the absence of regular skipper Faf du Plessis.

Faf du Plessis, along with Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada and JP Duminy are being rested ahead of the test series.


England have also rested their big names and names a 16 man squad which includes five uncapped players. The five uncapped players, who have no experience in any format yet, are given a chance which as expected sees many test regulars rested.
