Brits to captain South Africa for World Cup qualifiers
The two top-ranked teams from each pool of four will qualify for the World Cup, which will be held in Australia. South Africa are grouped in pool A, which also includes Bermuda, Netherlands and Papua New Guinea. The top-eight teams in the World Cup will in turn qualify for the ICC World Twenty20 to be held in England later that year, where the tournament will be held alongside the men's event.
Brits, 23, had first stood-in for the injured Fritz for this year's home one-day series against Pakistan, which South Africa won 4-0. She then captained the side to a 3-0 series whitewash in a Test series against the Netherlands.
The squad will gather at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria on November 13 and leave for Pakistan three days later.
