South Africa Cricket Team: 3 Most Important Players for ICC T20 World Cup 2022. 


KG, Shamsi, and Miller happen to be the 3 most crucial elements for the South Africa Cricket Team. Will SA make it to the semis?

The South Africa Cricket Team is going to be tough to beat at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. For the past few years, the performance of the South African team has been mediocre at the ICC events but this time around the team looks very solid. The team is not full of match-winners but if the names on the list perform to their potential the South Africa Cricket Team can go all the way. Here is a look at their 3 most crucial players: 

1) Kagiso Rabada will play for South Africa:

There is just one and only Kagiso Rabada. No one can replace KG! He bowls exceptionally well in the powerplay and is a beast in the death overs. His yorker and bouncers in the death overs seem to be laser-guided. Kagiso Rabada has been one of the most consistent players for the men in green. He bowls in tandem with Anrich Nortje and if they both find the rhythm, no one can stop the South Africa Cricket Team. Very few people know this but Kagiso Rabada can bat, he can easily be used as a number 8 option.

2) David Miller:

David Miller has to show the seniority that his name holds. He wasn’t in his prime form from 2018 to 2021 but he found himself in 2022. He took the Gujarat Titans to an IPL victory by finishing games. He bats deep and if it is in his arc, it goes out of the park. His off-side game has improved too. He has now started hitting sixes over cover.  

If Miller, De Kock, and Van Der Dussen can contribute, the batting unit of South Africa Cricket Team will get the job done. Miller holds a lot of experience. He has played top-flight cricket since 2011. It is about time; he makes use of it all.  

3) Tabraiz Shamsi will play for South Africa:

Tabraiz Shamsi is the first-choice spinner of the South African team. The team also has Keshav Maharaj but Shammo, the magician will be starting for them. Shamsi is a nightmare of lefty batters. He beats the batters in flight. He has been playing freelance cricket across the globe and is very highly rated by the ICC. There are only a few spinners with the class and daring of Tabraiz Shamsi. He is also of the mindset that if you want wickets, you need to be brave enough to go for runs.
