Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday named the 15-man South Africa Under-19s squad that will take on 2016 ICC Under-19 World Cup winners, the West Indies, in a five-match Youth One-Day International (ODI) series from July 9.

Skipper Raynard van Tonder will have nine new caps to lead, including 16-year-old Thando Ntini, son of former Proteas fast bowler, Makhaya.

A right-arm quick like his father, Thando has been playing in the youth set-up for quite some time.

The remaining six players were part of the team that beat Sri Lanka in an ODI series in January of this year.
