ICC World Cup 2019: South Africa full squad, South Africa complete fixtures

Soutth Africa and ODI World Cups has always been a tragic story. The African nation has produced some of the finest ODI teams over the years whose claim for the World Cup was deserving, yet South Africa stand empty-handed.

They have endured some really painful exits in World Cups, some in semi-finals and some in rain-affected games but all these exits have impacted the nation strongly. And now under Faf du Plessis’ leadership they gear up once again in their quest of the World Cup trophy. Will they achieve the glory finally or will it be another heartbreak?

 

South Africa World Cup 2019 squad

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

 

South Africa look to consolidate on youngsters

The exit of AB de Villiers is a massive blow to South Africa and the fate of their World Cup campaign depends on how well their middle-order can step up. Hashim Amla’s experience is a big plus while de Kock is in prime form in 2019. South Africa possess one of the best bowling attacks with Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir as the leaders of pace and spin department respectively.
