Close on the heels of the team's disastrous show in the Twenty20 World Cup 2010, South African selectors have dropped four players, including star batsman Herschelle Gibbs and included in the team for the upcoming tour of West Indies.
Hashim Amla, Alviro Petersen, Ryan McLaren, Lonwabo Tsotsobe and unheralded David Miller will also join the squad in the West Indies for the series.
Apart from Gibbs, all-rounder Albie Morkel, Rusty Theron and Rory Kleinveldt will not take part in the series.
Miller will join the squad next week for the two T20s matches, scheduled for next week in Antigua, and five ODIs. The left-hander replaces Wayne Parnell, who has so far not recovered from the groin injury suffered during Indian Premier League 2010. The 20-year-old Miller has been South Africa's highest scorer in the local Pro20 series.
