CAPE TOWN – South Africa have called all-rounder David Wiese into their squad for the first two one-day internationals against England starting in Bloemfontein on Wednesday.
Wiese replaced Albie Morkel, who was added to the squad on Sunday but has since been laid low by back spasms and will take no part in the five-match series, Cricket South Africa said on Monday.
Wiese, 32, made his ODI debut against New Zealand last August and played all three matches of that series. He has also featured in 12 Twenty20 internationals.
He is a medium-pace bowler and destructive lower-order batsman.
Wiese played for South Africa A against England in a warm-up fixture in Kimberley on Saturday, taking 2-73 in 10 overs and scoring a quick-fire 28.
