Update South Africa call up uncapped Migael Pretorius for Sri Lanka Tests

Pacer Migael Pretorius has received his maiden call-up to the South Africa Test squad for their upcoming Test Series against Sri Lanka, which starts on Boxing Day.

The 25-year-old, who plays for VKB Knights, is currently the third-highest wicket-taker in this year's 4-Day Domestic Cup with 20* wickets in five games, and has best bowling figures of 7 for 102 against the Hollywoodbets Dolphins last month.

"We're pleased to include Migael in the Proteas Test squad for the Sri Lanka series. We're big on rewarding consistently good work and the player has done a lot to make a case for himself," CSA Convenor of Selectors, Victor Mpitsang said.

"We hope that this experience will be a great learning one for him and that this can serve as encouragement for players across the country, showing them that their chances may not be as far off as they think," Mpitsang added.

The Proteas will gather in Pretoria on Saturday, 19 December to begin their preparation.

Kagiso Rabada and Dwaine Pretorius have not yet been medically cleared to participate in the tour, CSA further stated.

South Africa Test squad: Quinton de Kock (captain), Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis, Beuran Hendricks, Dean Elgar, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Rassie van der Dussen, Sarel Erwee, Anrich Nortje, Glenton Stuurman, Wiaan Mulder, Keegan Petersen, Kyle Verreynne, Migael Pretorius
