South Africa Women’s T20 WC Strengths and Weaknesses:  The Women’s T20 World Cup is quickly approaching, and each team is getting ready to give their best. In this year’s T20 world cup, ten teams are taking part. Today’s conversation will focus on the South Africa Women’s Team. Let’s examine the advantages and disadvantages of the team.

At the Newlands stadium in Cape Town, South Africa will face Sri Lanka on February 10 to open their campaign. In an effort to win its first major championship, South Africa will field a balanced team in the T20 World Cup 2023. The task of bringing the first trophy for South African women in the ICC Major trophies falls on Sune Luus.

T20 Women’s World Cup: Now let’s look into the South Africa Women’s T20 WC Strengths and Weaknesses leading up to the T20 World Cup 

The pace-bowling attack will be led by Shabnim Ismail. She recently has been brilliant in white-ball cricket and will continue to be crucial to the team leading up to the T20 world cup. Ismail’s ability to take early wickets will be essential, as she bowls with incredible speed. That is why she is one of the key threats to the opponents.

Ayabonga Khaka and Shabnim Ismail recently bowled exceptionally well with the new ball and will now try to continue this success in the championship match of the T20 World Cup in 2023.

  • Decent Batting line-up of South Africans

The Proteas have a strong batting lineup, with some experienced players who can make up the batting order destructive for the opponents. They have a tonne of experience under their belts, which will be helpful when they play the best teams in the later stages of the T20 World Cup.

Sune Luus, an accomplished all-rounder, is keen to lead the Proteas by example and help them win their maiden championship. She will have a significant opportunity to captain her country’s team in an ICC competition.

Disadvantages

There isn’t a reliable spinner in the South African team. Over the previous few years, Dane van Niekerk’s leg-spin has been terrific for them, but in this T20 World Cup, they may suffer in her absence.

In order to advance to the tournament’s semifinals, South African bowlers will face a difficult test and will need to maintain consistency with their lines and lengths during the middle overs.

They need something exceptional to resume their winning ways because they have struggled to maintain their composure under pressure during the clutch games and this is costing them a trophy in their showcase, so this time around they need to focus on this in order to over the problem and finally bring home a silverware.

Prediction for the T20 World Cup 

We’ll have to wait and see how the South African squad performs in-home circumstances for the Women’s T20 World Cup in 2023. although given the level of competition, based on the information available, we forecast that South Africa would lose in the group stages.

Though, don’t be shocked if they somehow get to the tournament’s knockout rounds. As they have a superior awareness of pitches and the South African team may or may not benefit from playing at home. For the time being, however, let’s wait and see!

T20 Women’s World Cup South Africa Full Squad 

Sune Luus (C), Annerie Dercksen, Marizanne Kapp, Lara Goodall, Ayabonga Khaka, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Shabnim Ismail, Tazmin Brits, Masabata Klaas, Laura Wolvaardt, Sinalo Jafta, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Anneke Bosch, Delmi Tucker.
