South Africa T20I World Cup 2022 Squad Analysis

We are back with the squads analysis for the upcoming T20I World Cup 2022 and in this article we will talk about the squad that South Africa have announced and their squad is also a good one but there is something missing and we will talk about that in our detailed analysis. South Africa have become a very good side in this format in the past year or so and their performance in the last World Cup was stellar as they won 4 out of their 5 league matches. South Africa will come in this tournament with a chip on their shoulders.

Before we discuss the team and analyze it properly, I want to say that South Africa is one of my personal favorite teams other than India and I really want to see them do well in this tournament and give a good account for themselves and the pitches in Australia will suit them. Let’s look at the squad and do the analysis.

South Africa T20I World Cup 2022 Squad

Temba Bavuma – Captain


Reeza Hendricks

Aiden Markaram

David Miller

Riley Rossouw

Tristan Stubbs


Quinton De Kock

Heinrich Klaasen


Dwaine Pretorius


Kagiso Rabada

Wayne Parnell

Anrich Nortje

Lungi Ngidi


Keshav Maharaj

Tabraiz Shamsi


The biggest strength of this team is the fast bowling as they have a lot of great fast bowling options who can bowl at over 140 and they have variety in their attack as well. Then their top order batting and the finishing is strong as well.


The biggest weakness is the absence of Rassie Van Der Dussen who will be a big blow for South Africa and their middle order batting is also weak compared to the other batting options. Their spinners also are not that potent.


This South Africa team has a great opportunity to win the first ICC tournament for their nation and Temba Bavuma has the opportunity to lead this team and score runs and David Miller has the opportunity to strengthen the middle order which looks weak.


Their spin bowling options are not that strong so other teams can become a Threat for them and their middle order can be exploited by the good bowling attacks in the tournament. There are threats that this team has to be careful about.
