Temba Bavuma to Lead the Charge
Temba Bavuma, a seasoned cricketer with a wealth of experience, will don the captain’s armband for South Africa in the ODI World Cup 2023. His leadership and batting prowess will be crucial as the Proteas aim to clinch their first-ever ODI World Cup title.

Spin Wizards Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi
South Africa’s spin department is set to be led by the dynamic duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi. Both spinners have been in excellent form in recent years and will be vital in providing crucial breakthroughs during the tournament.
Pace Battery Ready to Fire
In the fast-bowling department, South Africa boasts a formidable trio in Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Marco Jansen. These three pacers have the ability to generate raw pace and bounce, which can be a potent weapon on Indian pitches.
One of the significant talking points of the squad announcement was the omission of young batting sensation Dewald Brevis. Despite his promising performances in domestic and franchise cricket, the selectors decided to leave him out for the upcoming tournament.
