Cricket South Africa has named its 15-member squad for the ICC World Cup 2023 to be played in India from October 5-November 19. Temba Bavuma has been named as the captain with the senior players back in the side.

Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje all of whom were not included in South Africa’s T20I squad for the series against Australia are back for the World Cup squad.

Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi have been picked as the specialist spinners. Rassie Van der Dussen has also been picked in the 15-member squad. The teams are allowed to make changes to their World Cup squad till September 28.
