Cook leads SA Invitation XI

Stephen Cook will captain the South African Invitation XI to play against India in a two-day tour match at Willowmoore Park, Benoni, on December 14 and 15.

Players from the Titans and Dolphins could not be considered as the match clashed with their four-day fixture.

"As always, these matches against international touring sides offer the opportunities for players to show their worth at a higher level," SA Invitation XI coach, Vinnie Barnes said.

"Several of them showed outstanding form in the opening round of Sunfoil Series fixtures. Stephen and Stiaan van Zyl both scored centuries while Temba Bavuma fell just short. Beuran Hendricks, Hardus Viljoen and Stephen Harmer were among the leading wicket-takers."

SA INVITATION XI: Stephen Cook (captain), Temba Bavuma, Andrew Birch, Simon Harmer, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, Eddie Leie, Chris Morris, Rilee Rossouw, Yaseen Vallie, Stiaan van Zyl, Dane Vilas, Hardus Viljoen.
