The Proteas T20 squad will be looking to continue with the winning trend set by the Test and ODI squads in the upcoming KFC T20 International series against Sri Lanka starting at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday. The Proteas hold a 100% series win record after an impressive start to the season, and have the opportunity to add another series trophy to the cabinet.

Captain, Farhaan Behardien, says the squad will not be taking their opposition and the series lightly, especially in the absence of some of the regulars in the team.

South Africa's new fast bowling T20 cap, Lungi Ngidi, hopes to add another milestone to his fast-moving cricket career in the upcoming KFC T20 International series against Sri Lanka starting at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday. The 20-year-old has had a dream run over the last couple of months after making his debut for the Multiply Titans in the CSA T20 Challenge this season- he was named as the bowler of the match in the six-run victory in the final - and hopes to take his performances onto the international stage.

“I wouldn’t say that I expected it sooner, but the journey has been amazing for me, everything has unfolded quickly,” he said ahead of the squad’s first training session on Tuesday. “I have put in a few performances here and there but the coaches were always reminding me that consistency is the best thing. That is what I tried to do, one step at a time, I tried to be as consistent as possible, and the performances came naturally with playing well.”

"Not yet. I'm not there yet," de Villiers was quoted as saying by ESPN on Tuesday. "The reason being that I just need to settle things in my head.
