Botha, Morkel in ODI squad


Albie Morkel and Johan Botha have been called up to the South Africa squad for the five-match One-day International (ODI) series in Pakistan beginning next week.

The two will join the squad currently playing the second Test in Lahore, along with Charl Langeveldt and Justin Kemp, who has been named deputy to Graeme Smith, the captain.

Botha, an off-break bowler, last played for South Africa in February 2006, following which his bowling action came under scrutiny. Botha played in the Afro-Asia Cup held earlier this year, and was the captain of the South African team that won the Emerging Players Tournament in Australia. Hashim Amla, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn and Paul Harris are the four players from the Test team in Pakistan not to feature in the ODI squad.

The squad: Graeme Smith (captain), Justin Kemp, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Mark Boucher (wicket-keeper), Shaun Pollock, Vernon Philander, Albie Morkel, Johan Botha, Makhaya Ntini, Charl Langeveldt, Andre Nel.
