Cricket South Africa (CSA) has revealed a new jersey for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, scheduled to be played in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA) in June. Cricket South Africa unveiled the team kit on their official social media handle on Sunday, April 28.

South Africa has struggled in the T20 World Cup and never reached the final match. The team was in contention until the last game of the previous tournament. However, they suffered a surprising loss to the Netherlands, leading to their elimination from the competition in Australia.

South African players like Heinrich Klaasen and Tristan Stubbs are in red-hot form, along with Kagiso Rabada and Aiden Markram. The Proteas are confident of clinching their maiden World Cup trophy in 2024. The players are currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.
