Protea Team Captain Dane’ Van Niekerk says it is very exciting to have been chosen and the team is a very experienced team.

I think I said it early, this is the best bunch we have got in a very long while so I am very excited with the mix of experience and inexperience and I am very excited for the world cup.

Dane’ Van Niekerk, Protea Team Captain

All Rounder Chloe Tryon says she is also very excited for the T20 which she prefers.

Its fast cricket, its high intensity all the way. And obviously, the game has evolved so much that everyone loves the T20 so I will definitely say T20.

Bowler Tumi Sekhukhune says she only gave herself two years to get into the team as she was still working on the skills she was lacking.

It is really quite exciting to be part of the Proteas.
