The South African cricket team

The South African cricket team, also known as the Proteas, is expected to compete in the upcoming World Cup. They have participated in every Cricket World Cup since their reinstatement in 1992. They have reached the semi-finals four times but are yet to win the tournament. They will start their campaign against the Sri Lanka in Delhi on 7 October.  

The Proteas have recently announced their preliminary ODI World Cup squad, which includes some surprise selections such as Janneman Malan and Wian Mulder, who have been out of the team for a while. The Proteas are also preparing for a home series against Australia, which will start on 31 August. The series will be a good opportunity for the new look team, led by Temba Bavuma, to showcase their aggressive approach and fine-tune their skills ahead of the World Cup. The Proteas have also been affected by some fixture changes in the World Cup schedule, such as their clash against Australia being moved earlier to 12 October. South Africa’s cricketing prowess is recognised around the world, and we look forward to seeing them compete at their best.
