The squad features some notable inclusions, including the dynamic duo of Anrich Nortje and Quinton de Kock. Despite being excluded from Cricket South Africa’s central contract list, Nortje and De Kock have earned their spots in the T20 World Cup squad.

Nortje, recovering from a back injury sustained in September 2023, brings his pace and aggression to the bowling attack, while De Kock’s experience and explosive batting prowess add depth to the team.

The squad also welcomes two uncapped T20I players, Ryan Rickelton and Ottniel Baartman, who impressed selectors with their performances in the recent SA20 tournament. Rickelton emerged as the leading run-scorer in the tournament, showcasing his ability to anchor the innings and accelerate when needed. Baartman, on the other hand, impressed with his wicket-taking ability, tallying 18 scalps in just eight matches.
