Proteas call-up De Kock and Morris


South Africa have called up uncapped all-rounder Chris Morris and wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock for the second Test following their crushing 241-run defeat against England at Kingsmead.

Cricket South Africa revealed just after the first Test defeat in Durban on Wednesday that Morris has been added to the squad, with premier paceman Dale Steyn having suffered a shoulder injury which is set to rule him out of the second Test at Newlands.

De Kock is also recalled after being dropped following the first Test against Bangladesh, which is expected to lead to AB de Villiers handing over the gloves when the second Test gets underway in Cape Town on Saturday.

CSA convenor of selectors Linda Zondi said: "Following our performance and injuries in the first Test, we have recognised the need to bolster the squad.

"This will provide us with more selection options for the second Test match at Newlands."

De Kock made a century for The Unlimited Titans against Cape Cobras this week, while Morris scored 86 runs and took three wickets.

Morris has played 12 limited overs matches for the Proteas, but has not featured at Test level.
