New Delhi: Cricket South Africa on Tuesday narrowed down its probables list for the World T20 from 30 down to 18, but retained its faith on the big-hitting Justin Kemp.
Kemp who has been recalled into the squad following his brief stint with the ICL and a fall-out with the South African cricket system.
The list of probables would be further shortened to 15 when the final squad is named on March 30. Juan Theron, the fast bowler who has impressed in the domestic circuit that earned him an IPL contract with Kings XI Punjab, also featured in the list.
A woefully out of form Jean-Paul Duminy was just about retained in the squad, while Alviro Petersen, who did well in the Indian tour, was left out.
South Africa squad for ICC World Twenty20: Graeme Smith (capt), Jacques Kallis, Loots Bosman, Johan Botha, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Herschelle Gibbs, Justin Kemp, Charl Langeveldt, Ryan McLaren, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn, Juan Theron, Roelof van der Merwe.
