Pat Lambie has been named captain of the Springboks side that will take on the Proteas in the annual T20 Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup at Newlands on 8 December.
Lambie is one of seven current Springbok players in the match-day squad alongside Damian de Allende, Faf de Klerk, Sergeal Petersen, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Trevor Nyakane and Siya Kolisi (non-playing reserve).
The rest of the team is made up of former Boks Jean de Villiers, Butch James, Conrad Jantjies, Tiaan Liebenberg and Percy Montgomery; while Blitzboks star Stephan Dippenaar will also take part.
The third installment of the much-anticipated T20 game is set to start at 6pm next Thursday night, and all proceeds will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
