Cricket South Africa have announced their squad for the three-match T20 series against India. The team's captaincy has been snatched from the Faf du Plessis and handed over to young wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock. The first T20 series between India and South Africa will be played in Dharamsala on September 15.
