Johannesburg: Theres been a lot of questions about the leadership of AB de Villiers in the past couple of days. 


South Africa failed to qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy play-offs, losing to a well balanced Indian side. 

AB takes over the arm-band in absence of Faf Du Plessis, who returns home for the birth of his first child. Proteas have decided to rest 5 players for this T20 series: Hashim Amla, Quinton de kock, Kagiso Rabada, JP Duminy and Faf du Plessis. 

T20 Squad: AB de Villiers (capt), Farhaan Behardien, Reeza Hendricks, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Mangaliso Mosehle (wk), Wayne Parnell, Dane Paterson, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Tabraiz Shamsi, JJ Smuts
