South Africa’s Test captain Hashim Amla will be missing the opening T20 warm-up game against Board President’s XI at Palam on Tuesday.
According to South African team management, Amla decided to join the team couple of days late due to some personal commitments.
“Hashim will not be available for the practice game tomorrow. He will be joining the squad after the T20 game. He will join us here in Delhi and fly with the team to Dharamsala,” team’s media manager Lerato Malekutu said.
“Amla will join us on Wednesday,” said Coach Russell Domingo.
Asked about Albie Morkel’s absence, the media manager said, “Albie is yet to get visa for India as he was announced as last minute replacement for David Wiese.”
The South African team had a two-and-half hour session at the Air force ground with likes of Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy having a quality net session.
