South Africa are regarded as one of the most dangerous teams in world cricket, but the things are different when it comes to major ICC tournaments like the ODI World Cup. The Proteas have earned the tag of ‘Chokers’ in international tournaments for their performances in big pressure matches. There have been many legendary players who have represented South Africa in international cricket but none of them have been able to help the Proteas to win any major international trophy except the inaugural edition of the Champions Trophy in 1998.
Notably, South Africa have never been a part of any ODI World Cup throughout its history. The last time they made it into the semi final was in the 2015 World Cup where they lost to New Zealand in a dramatic finish in Auckland. Now, South Africa will be looking to change their fortunes in the 2023 ODI World Cup in India and earn the title of World Champions for the first time.
Temba Bavuma will be the skipper of South Africa for the upcoming tournament and the fans will be having high hopes from him to make Proteas lift the World Cup trophy for the first time. They will kick off their World Cup campaign on 7th October against Sri Lanka at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Let’s have a look at the full schedule of South Africa Squad in the 2023 ODI World Cup.
