Hashim Amla in, Chris Morris out

The team will be led by Faf du Plessis and he will have plenty of bowling options as Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Dale Steyn, Anrich Nortje and Dwaine Pretorius have been included in the squad.

South Africa's campaign in the 2015 World Cup ended in controversy over quotas when official pressure was exerted to pick Vernon Philander for a semi-final against New Zealand despite the team management wanting to stay with the team that won a quarter-final against Sri Lanka, when Philander was injured.

Amla was ostensibly chosen ahead of Reeza Hendricks, who is one of the real contenders missing from the group, when Cricket South Africa president Chris Nenzani announced the team at the SuperSport studios in Randburg on Thursday.

"Everyone has been on our case for not having a back-up keeper, but as a panel we felt it was important, when looking at the batting and bowling we have, some of the keepers we've been looking at, their performances weren't quite there in terms of looking at our bowling back up and the batters we now we have", National Selection Panel Convener Linda Zondi said.

Meanwhile, only Quinton de Kock has been selected as a specialist wicketkeeper. So we went with David Miller, who kept in the Sri Lanka series.

Egypt's lawmakers vote to extend president's term limits
The changes would extend Sisi's current term to six years from four and then allow him to run again for another six-year period. It is in charge of major infrastructure projects, and generals occupy key positions throughout the government.

Amla, 36, will be playing in his third World Cup despite a poor run of recent form.

Ignored at the IPL auctions past year, the South African pace great has been roped in as a replacement for injured Nathan Coulter-Nile. And in the Indian Premier League, Imran Tahir has been right up there in terms of wickets, ' said Steyn, who is hoping to make South Africa's 15-man squad for the May 30-July 14 tournament.

"When CSA appointed Ottis Gibson, he came with his own philosophy". For years as South Africa we were playing conservative cricket.

The fast bowlers will be spearheaded by Kagiso Rabada and Dale Steyn, with Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje recovering from their respective injuries to take their place in the squad.
