Experienced captain Temba Bavuma will lead the Proteas in this prestigious tournament as he aims to guide his team to their first-ever ODI World Cup title.

De Cock To lead Top Order For South Africa in 2023 World Cup

The squad features a balanced mix of seasoned campaigners and exciting young talent. Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, who recently announced his retirement from ODI cricket after this event, will be crucial with his explosive batting at the top of the order.

Vice-captain Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller bring stability to the middle order.

Pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada will lead the bowling attack and look to replicate his success from previous ICC events.

He will be supported by fellow quicks Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje and all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius.

Debut Picks For South African Team in 2023 World Cup

There is also a surprise maiden World Cup call-up for 22-year-old rising star Gerald Coetzee. The young fast bowler has impressed in his first two ODI appearances against the West Indies this year, picking up 5 wickets at a miserly economy rate of 5.50.

In total, eight players in the squad will be making their ODI World Cup debuts for South Africa. While this brings inexperience, their skill and talent make them strong contenders.

Spin twins Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj will be crucial on the slower Indian pitches. Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller add power hitting in the lower order.

One notable omission was talented youngster Dewald Brevis, who has excelled in domestic cricket and the IPL but missed out on World Cup selection.

With a well-balanced squad featuring the perfect blend of youth and experience, South Africa will be aiming to clinch that elusive World Cup crown.

If the team can fire on all cylinders and handle the pressure of knockout games, they have the ability to go all the way.
