On Tuesday, 6th September, 2022, Cricket South Africa CSA announced its squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 scheduled in Australia next month. Skipper Temba Bavuma is all prepared to lead South Africa in a second T20 World Cup in a row. Bavuma sustained an elbow injury during the T20I series against India in June but he has recovered completely from it. Prior to the World Cup in Australia, South Africa will tour India for the three-match T20I series which will serve as a preparation for the big tournament. The Proteas had an amazing outing in the last T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE. They were able to win 4 out of 5 games in the group of death alongside England, Australia, West Indies and Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, they failed to make it to the semi-finals due to a poor net run rate. Let’s have an analysis of South Africa ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Squad.

Rassie van der Dussen is the major omission from the South Africa T20 World Cup 2022 Squad. He missed out due to a finger injury which he suffered during the second Test against England. He will undergo surgery and therefore will be out of action for at least six weeks.
Rilee Rossow is a surprise inclusion. He has not been a part of South Africa’s T20 setup for almost six year. However, he has made a successful comeback in July and now also finds a place in the T20 World Cup squad.
Tristan Stubbs will be making his World Cup debut in Australia.
