De Villiers backs fresh faces for T20s against Kiwis

Johannesburg , Thu, 13 Dec 2012 ANI

Johannesburg, Dec 13(ANI): South Africa limited overs captain AB de Villiers has expressed his support for a new-look Twenty20 side ahead of the three-match series against New Zealand.

The national squad for the series, which starts next week, was set to be named in Cape Town on Thursday, and De Villiers expected fresh faces after South Africa's disappointing ICC World T20 exit before the semi-final stage.

"You've got to keep the T20 team fresh and exciting and it's a great vehicle to get youngsters through into international cricket," Sport24 quoted De Villiers, as saying.

"We want to try fresh faces and there will definitely be a few new names because there are youngsters who have really performed at domestic level and we need to give them a chance. These new players will bring different talents and skills, which is exciting," he added.

However, even if fresh faces such as Aaron Phangiso, Hardus Viljoen, Chris Morris, Roelof van der Merwe, Vaughn van Jaarsveld and Andrew Birch are included, the skipper insisted that South Africa's T20 strategies were not going to undergo any dramatic change.

De Villiers added: "We may have new players, but we'll use the same strategy and follow the same game plan." (ANI)
