South Africa World Cup Squad

Cricket South Africa Announced their 15 member squad for the world cup in England. They have surprised everyone by picking up a player who had recently debuted in ODI cricket. His name is Anrich Nortje, who has made debut in March 2019. He outclassed Morris in the 15 member squad. They have gone with Proterious and Phelukwayo ahead of Morris and Mulder. 

The remaining team is selected as expected. They had given many chances to Reeza Hendricks to prove his mettle as an opener. But, He failed to create an impact. So, They have gone with Hashim Amla along with De Kock, Markram. Faf Duplessis is leading the side and injured Ngidi has also got his place back.

Imran Tahir, Shamsi was selected as the spinners. Rabada and Steyn were leading the pace attack. Miller and Rassie van der Dussen were the pinch hitters in the team and also they are the backup keepers of the team. However, They have the mettle to win the world cup. But, Their middle order needs to be firing in the knockout stages as AB Devilliers announced his retirement recently. 

Squad: Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Dale Steyn, Andile Phehlukwayo, Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada, Dwaine Pretorius, Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Hashim Amla, Tabraiz Shamsi
