South Africa have named their strong 15 member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2023 scheduled to be held on home soil from February 10 to 26.
The team will be captained by Sune Luus and have the likes of Chloe Tryon, Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail in their set up. There is no spot for former captain Dane van Niekerk, who missed out on selection because of failing a sprint by 18 seconds (yes, you read that right!)
They will start their campaign against Sri Lanka on 10 February in Cape Town. The South Africa Women are in Group A alongside Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
