Paceman Juan ‘Rusty’ Theron was the only new cap included in South Africa’s 15-man squad, while Graeme Smith was confirmed as captain on Wednesday for the Twenty20 World Cup starting next month.

Smith, whose participation was in doubt due to a fractured finger, will return to captain the side in the April 30 to May 16 tournament, coach Corrie van Zyl said. Van Zyl said, the 24-year-old Theron earned his place after impressive performances for Punjab in the IPL.

Squad: G Smith (capt), J Kallis, L Bosman, J Botha, M Boucher, de Villiers, JP Duminy, H Gibbs, R Kleinveldt, C Langeveldt, A Morkel, M Morkel, D Steyn, J Theron, van der Merwe.
