South Africa have announced a full-fledged squad for their upcoming five-match T20I series in India, scheduled to be played between June 9 and 19. Anrich Nortje, who had suffered a hip injury, has returned, while Tristan Stubbs, who joined Mumbai Indians two weeks ago, has received maiden call-up.

South Africa's first-choice group of players will tour India for their upcoming five-match T20 series in India, under the leadership of Temba Bavuma. Anrich Nortje, who has not played for the national side since the T20 World Cup last November due to a hip injury, has been recalled, while Tristan Stubbs, the second-highest run-scorer in South Africa's domestic T20 challenge, has earned his maiden call-up.

Stubbs joined Mumbai Indians (MI) on May 5 to replace the injured Tymal Mills for the remainder of IPL 2022. He is a promising 21-year-old middle-order batter, who had scored 506 runs in 17 senior T20 innings.

Among the well-known faces, Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, and Tabraiz Shamsi have been included in the squad. Rassie van der Dussen and Marco Jansen have made the cut as well, so have Heinrich Klaasen and Keshav Maharaj.

India are currently the top-ranked side in T20Is. South Africa, on the other hand, are placed at fourth. The five-match series will be played between June 9 and 19.

South Africa's T20I Squad vs India:Temba Bavuma (C), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tristan Stubbs, Rassie van der Dussen, Marco Jansen, Tabraiz Shamsi.
