Bloemfontein – 21-Year-old Chevrolet Knights fast bowler, Corné Dry has received a call up to join the South Africa A squad currently playing two four-day Test matches against Australia A.
Dry, made a name for himself during the domestic four-day competition last season and was largely instrumental in the Knights finishing second in the standings.
The player told Courant that getting the special call is something you always work towards, but don’t expect it…
The speedster, who is the younger brother of Springbok Sevens legend Chris Dry, said his brother was always the better rugby player, while cricket is his forte.
Dry departs for Down-under on Sunday along with David Wiese of the Titans in time for the second unofficial Test starting on 14 August.
Meanwhile, South Africa bowled Australia out for 239 runs on day one of the first unofficial Test in Townsville.
At stumps South Africa were on 26/1 with Reeza Hendricks on 9* and Hardus Viljoen on 0*.
