South Africa have officially announced their squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. The side will be captained by Temba Bavuma. Notable inclusions are youngster Tristan Stubbs and Kolpak returnee Rilee Rossouw, both of whom impressed on the tour of England a few weeks ago, but Rassie van der Dussen, who recently sustained a finger injury, misses out.

Differences between SA T20 World Cup Squad in 2022 & South Africa Last T20 World Cup Squad in 2021
SA players present in 2021 T20 World Cup main squad but not in 2022 World Cup squad: Fortuin, Mulder, Van der Dussen

Is Marco Jansen there in SA T20 World Cup Squad 2022?
No, Jansen is not part of South Africa’s official 15 man squad, but he has been named as a travelling reserve.
Why is Rassie van der Dussen not in the SA T20 WC squad for 2022?
Van der Dussen picked up a finger injury in the second test against England and is expected to be out for “upto 6 weeks”, and therefore was not named in the WC squad. His replacement is Rilee Rossouw.
