He retired from professional cricket during the 2021 T20 World Cup and will help mentor the young players during the three-ODI series in Centurion
Colin Ackermann, Roelof van der Merwe and Stephan Myburgh all played domestic cricket in South Africa and van der Merwe and Myburgh, in particular, will be familiar with conditions. Three ODIs, scheduled for November 26, 28 and December 1, will be played at SuperSport Park in Centurion, where van der Merwe and Myburgh were previously based. A limited number of fans are expected to be allowed into the venue, in line with the current Covid-19 regulations in South Africa, which are at their lowest level since the pandemic began.
Those spectators will witness history, as it will be the first time South Africa and Netherlands play in South Africa, after meeting in four ODIs and one T20Is before. South Africa have won all those fixtures.
Netherlands squad: Pieter Seelaar (capt), Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, Vivian Kingma, Max O’Dowd, Scott Edwards, Boris Gorlee, Clayton Floyd, Musa Ahmed, Brandon Glover, Fred Klaassen, Roelof van der Merwe, Saqib Zulfiqar, Stephan Myburgh, Shane Snater, Timm van der Gugten
