ICC World Cup 2023 South Africa Team and Players: Cricket is a beloved sport in many parts of the world. It originated in England, and the country won its maiden World Cup title in 2019. Cricket is also popular in countries that used to be British colonies, like South Africa, New Zealand and India.

South Africa is considered one of the top cricket teams in the world and is always involved in competitive matches. The country has produced some of the greatest cricketers of all time, like Jacques Kallis, Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn.

South Africa has never won a World Cup, and last reached the semi-finals in the 2015 edition. They look to win their maiden title this year with a skilled and experienced squad. South Africa was the second to announce its World Cup squad after India on September 5. 

There are a few surprises and some predictable entries like always. 8 out of 15 players will play their first World Cup for South Africa.

ICC WC South Africa Players List with Details

  • The South African squad is balanced with newcomers and experienced players alike. David Miller, Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen will be seen in action at the World Cup.
  • Fans will also see the last of de Kock as he has announced his retirement from ODIs after the 2023 World Cup.
  • Temba Bavuma will lead the South African team as captain. Teams can make changes before September 28, but this appears to be the final South Africa World Cup squad.
  • Unfortunately for fans and the South African team, star pacers Anrich Nortje and Sisanda Magala failed to clear a fitness test and were ruled out of the squad.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo and Lizaad Williams have been brought in as their replacements.

South Africa Cricket coach Rob Walter commented on the squad and the obvious omissions as follows:

“It’s hugely disappointing for Anrich and Sisanda to be missing out on the 50-over World Cup. Both are quality players that add immense value to the Proteas. We sympathize in their omission and will continue to provide all the necessary support as they work towards their return to competitive action.

“This provides an opportunity for Andile and Lizaad on the global stage. Both players have been part of our winter programs as well as having represented South Africa in the recent white-ball tour against Australia. They offer great skill sets and we’re excited to have them complete the 15-player squad for this year’s World Cup.”
