T20 World Cup 2022: Complete Schedule Of South Africa Team, Dates, Timings in IST

With impressive and consistent performances in the past year, and boasting of a well-rounded, strong unit, South Africa have emerged as the dark horses for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. The recall of T20 veteran Rilee Rossouw has added more firepower to the batting line-up.

It is not to forget that they missed out on a semi-final berth last year in the UAE on net run rate after ending up with the same amount of points as Australia and England.

Since the 2021 T20 WC, South Africa have played 3 T20I series all away from home: a 2-2 draw in India, 2-1 win in England and 2-0 win vs Ireland. They have another tough assignment coming up: 3-T20Is in India before they fly to Australia.

South Africa squad for the T20 World Cup 2022:

South Africa: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Rillee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs.

Reserves: Bjorn Fortuin, Marco Jansen, Andile Phehlukwayo.
