Sports Desk: Bangladesh are all set to tour South Africa for a full series--comprising of two tests, three ODIs and two T20Is, starting from September 28.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has already announced the 15-member test squad for South Africa tour as the team is scheduled to leave Dhaka on September 16.

Meanwhile the Board of Directors of Cricket South Africa (CSA) has approved the recommendation of the National Selection Panel to appoint Faf du Plessis as captain of the Standard Bank ODI squad with immediate effect.

He takes the place of AB de Villiers who had resigned as the captain. Du Plessis will thus captain the Proteas in all three formats.
