The International Cricket Council (ICC) has declared the schedule for the approaching T20 World Cup, which will begin from 17th October 2021. In Group 1, South Africa is positioned alongside England, West Indies and Australia. Remarkably, from the 4 previously qualified teams, the Proteas team is the one that shows the poorest performance.
In international cricket, South Africa has observed a huge downfall. Currently, they are positioned in fifth place in the T20I rankings. Moreover, in the recent five T20I series, this team couldn’t perform up to the mark in three series. The important aspect to note is that the team consists of many efficient players. But the point is they are incapable of showing a good performance collectively as a team. This may be because of poor management of the team or the players could not get together while performing against their opponents.
The management of this team will anticipate that things will change in the World Cup this year. This team comprises some talented and proficient players like Kagiso Rabada, Quinton de Kock, Rassi Van Der Dussen, Tabraiz Shamsi, David Miller, etc. These players and a few more can contribute to the success of the team in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Provided players perform well, they can put up a tough fight against any opposition.
Importantly, the South Africa team is presently contesting against Sri Lanka in a bilateral T20 series. Furthermore, they have received a wonderful triumph in the initial match as they won by 28 runs. This victory equipped the team with great confidence to further succeed in the upcoming matches.
Till now, the South African team has not succeeded in any T20 World Cup. Another thing to note is they have also never reached the tournament’s finals. In the meantime, under the captainship of Temba Bavuma, South Africa would anticipate a better result during the upcoming world cup.
