Event:South Africa in India 2009/10

DateLine: 19th January 2010


The off-spinner Johan Botha and left-arm fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe were named in a 15-man South African squad for two Test matches in India next month.


The Test matches will be played in Nagpur and Kolkata. The South African team departs on January 30.


Botha and Tsotsobe were added to the 13-man squad that was picked for the fourth and final Test against England in Johannesburg in which South Africa levelled the series with a win by an innings and 74 runs.


Botha, a regular in the One-day squad, returns to the Test squad for the first time since a tour of Bangladesh in 2008. Tsotsobe was a member of the South African team that toured Australia last year.


There was no place for Makhaya Ntini, who was dropped after the second Test against England.


Herschelle Gibbs returns to the national team for the first time since the World Twenty20 in England in June 2009 as part of a 15-man squad for three One-Day Internationals in India which will follow the Test series.


Loots Bosman, another hard-hitting batsman, has also been called up. He hit 94 in a Twenty20 international against England in November but did not play in the One-day series.
