Updated on: Sep 7, 2022 2:43 pm IST
South Africa haven’t won a world cup in the history of cricket. They have had some great teams over the years but none managed to lift the trophy for their country. They have yet another chance here in the upcoming T20 world cup in Australia. They have announced the squad for the same.
T20 world cup 2022: Rassie Van der Dussen misses out
South Africa missed the semi final in the previous edition of T20 world cup due to NRR. They were the best side in the competition in group stage where they even defended a target which no team could manage.
Rassie Van der Dussen is one of the most consistent white ball players in the world cricket. He was the highest run scorer for South Africa in the WT20 2021. He scored 177 runs in 5 games at an extraordinary average of 59. He won’t be available for SA in the upcoming world cup in Australia as he is nursing a finger injury.
Although, it is a blessing in disguise for SA that Rassie Van Der Dussen isn’t available because there is no place for him at the top of the order because of the return of Rilee Rossouw. There are better players than him available at the lower middle order. They have such an excellent squad under their disposal with all bases covered.

Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs.
