Matthew Breetzke earned a maiden call-up to South Africa's Test squad for the tour of West Indies as the Proteas' red-ball regulars returned after missing out on the tour of New Zealand earlier this year due to a schedule clash with the SA20. The 25-year-old Breetzke, who has played six T20Is, is currently playing for Northamptonshire in the County Championship and was part of an 'A' squad that toured Sri Lanka last year.

South Africa Test squad: Temba Bavuma, David Bedingham, Matthew Breetzke, Nandre Burger, Gerald Coetzee, Tony de Zorzi, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, Wiaan Mulder, Lungi Ngidi, Dane Paterson, Dane Piedt, Kagiso Rabada, Tristan Stubbs, Ryan Rickelton, Kyle Verreynne

From the make-shift squad that toured New Zealand, only David Bedingham, Dane Paterson and Dane Piedt retained their places in the Temba Bavuma-led squad. Keeper-bat Ryan Rickelton has been recalled to the squad after last featuring in the home series against West Indies in early 2023 while seam-bowling all-rounder Marco Jansen was granted rest.

"The decision to rest Marco Jansen was taken to allow for a conditioning period aimed at ensuring optimal physical and mental well-being given the season-long workloads," Test coach Shukri Conrad said in a CSA statement.

South Africa currently sit seventh on the World Test Championship standings following their 0-2 defeat in New Zealand. After these two Tests in the Caribbean, they are scheduled to play two more in and against Bangladesh in October before hosting Sri Lanka and Pakistan during the home summer.

"This tour is extremely important for us as we aim to improve our standing in the ICC World Test Championship," Conrad said. "We have, therefore, selected our strongest possible squad and look forward to strong performances in the Caribbean."

Players not currently involved in the MLC or in the County Championship will have a four-day camp in Durban before flying out to the Caribbean. The first Test will be played in Trinidad from August 7. The second Test will be played in Guyana from August 15.
