Tsotsobe in contention for World Cup spot.
Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who occupied top spot in the ODI bowling rankings from February 2012 to May 2013 but has not played for South Africa since March, is in contention for a World Cup spot after being named in the 30-man preliminary squad.
Tsotsobe has fully recovered from ankle surgery which kept him out the winter tours to Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, and is currently the leading wicket-taker in the domestic one-day cup.
Since making his comeback from injury, Tsotsobe has taken 29 wickets across all formats at an average of 22.79.
He has been particularly impressive in the fifty-over game, where his 12 scalps from six matches have come at 18.08.
