South Africa will play three ODIs, three T20Is and three Test matches in England. The tour starts on July 19 with the first ODI at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

Bavuma injure his left arm while fielding in the fourth T20I against India. According to Cricket South Africa, the 32-year-old batter will need eight weeks to recover.

The CSA selectors have recalled Rilee Rossouw to the T20 squad. The 32-year-old batter last played for South Africa in 2016 before taking up a contract and a Kolpak deal with English county side Hampshire.

But premier fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has been rested for the ODIs with young pacer fast bowler Gerald Coetzee getting his maiden T20I call-up.

"The T20 format is a high priority for us at the moment because of ICC T20 World Cup coming up in a few short months in Australia," CSA Convenor of Selectors, Victor Mpitsang said.

"We are looking to give opportunities to players that we are interested in seeing and working out the best combinations, while also trying to balance our desire to maintain enough consistency within the set up that the players are used to playing together as a team by the time they reach Australia for the World Cup. This series will go a long way in helping us achieve all of those objectives."

"While the ODI series is not for Super League points, the 50-over format is of vital importance as we look ahead to the 2023 ICC World Cup in India. The combinations tried and the performances we yielded will go a long way in our build up to that tournament."

The Proteas will have a full-strength squad for the Test series. They are currently second on the World Test Championship points table.
