ICC Announced: All teams are allowed to make changes to their squad until 25 May, after which any alteration will require approval from ICC’s Event Technical Committee.

Anrich Nortje and Quinton de Kock are back in the squad after being left out of Cricket South Africa’s central contracts. Nortje was sidelined due to a back injury since September 2023, while De Kock retired from ODIs after the 2023 Cricket World Cup, having already said goodbye to Test cricket in 2022.

South Africa Squad For T20 World Cup 2024

Ryan Rickelton and Ottniel Baartman did really well in the recent SA20 games. They are now part of the squad for T20Is. Rickelton scored the most runs, 530, playing for MI Cape Town, while Baartman took 18 wickets for Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

The Proteas have a strong batting team with Markram, De Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, and the promising Tristan Stubbs.

Kagiso Rabada and Nortje will lead the pace attack, supported by Marco Jansen and Gerald Coetzee. Bjorn Fortuin, Keshav Maharaj, and Tabraiz Shamsi will handle spin bowling.

Coach Rob Walter found it really hard to pick this team because there’s been so much T20 cricket lately and lots of good players showing their skills. He wants to give a big congrats to Ryan and Ottniel, who are new to the team.

“The players have been doing amazingly well in 2024, which made Coach Walter’s job really tough. But he’s proud and sure that the squad he’s picked is the strongest possible. They’ve got a great shot at winning in the West Indies and USA.”

South Africa starts their T20 World Cup on June 3 against Sri Lanka in New York.
