Reason

CSA outlines why an inexperienced leadership group was selected

SA are keen to look at all the options in T20Is.

"The T20 Series gives us the last chance to have a look at our leadership and batting options as the next edition of the WT20 is now little more than a year away which is why we have gone with an inexperienced leadership group," said CSA Acting Director of Cricket, Corrie van Zyl.

Du Plessis to lead the Test team

Here's South Africa's Test squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Temba Bavuma (vc), Theunis de Bruyn, Quinton de Kock, Dean Elgar, Zubayr Hamza, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, Senuran Muthusamy, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Vernon Philander, Dane Piedt, Kagiso Rabada, Rudi Second.

SA have named three newcomers in the Test team to face India.

"All three newcomers to the Test side have more than earned their spurs through impressive performances in last season's Four-Day Franchise competition," Corrie van Zyl said.

With the ICC Test Championship on, it will be a massive moment for both teams to go and give a strong account of themselves.
