South Africa captain Faf du Plessis will make his comeback in the third ODI against Zimbabwe in Paarl on Saturday.
Du Plessis injured his right shoulder while diving for a catch during the third ODI against Sri Lanka on August 5 and has been sidelined since then.
However, now that he has fully recovered, he will feature in the third ODI against Zimbabwe.
“The guys have been training hard,” Du Plessis was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz. “I have also been training hard with the guys and I’m feeling excited to be back on the field again. The guys are motivated, we are not only looking at what is in front of us now, there is a bigger purpose and push for what lies ahead. At no stage will we be taking it easy. The guys are still trying to impress and are trying to get into that World Cup side.
“The players are motivated and driven to put in performances to put their names into the hat for the World Cup selection,” he explained. “As a team, we are still trying to find our feet as to how exactly we are going to go about playing in the World Cup. There are some exceptional players coming through which is great to see.”South Africa hold an unassailble 2-0 lead going into the third ODI.
