Moseline Daniels makes a return to international cricket after a two-year break when South Africa play Sri Lanka in the second women’s Twenty20 international in Potchefstroom on Saturday. The left-arm seamer from Boland makes her first international appearance since the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in Bangladesh in December 2011.
She is excited to return to the team after taking a break for personal reasons.
“It’s been a very long road to come back to cricket and I am very excited to be able to play international cricket again,” she said. “I can’t wait to get to the middle and make the most of this opportunity.”
South Africa have won the toss and elected to field first on the same wicket that was used in the first match.
