KwaZulu-Natal Dolphins captain Dale Benkenstein has been selected to replace the injured HD Ackerman (shoulder injury) as captain of the South Africa 'A' team to play against India in their tour match in East London this weekend.

In another change due to injury, Highveld Strikers batsman Daryll Cullinan replaces Justin Ontong, who is recovering from a hamstring injury.

Eastern Province right-arm medium-fast bowler Garnett Kruger (23) has replaced Western Province's Charl Willoughby, who had a fitness test yesterday, was forced to pull out of the team due to a knee injury.
