South African 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup Squad Announced
South Africa will be participating in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. The tournament is jointly hosted by India, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh. The 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup will use cricket’s One Day International format. 14 national cricket teams will compete in the tournament. The 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup Cup starts on the 19th of February 2011 and ends on the 2nd of April. There will be a total of 49 match played.
The South African squad was announced last night after the Proteas lost their 2nd ODI in a row against India at Newlands in Cape Town.
Here are the 15 players that will represent South Africa in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup:
- Graeme Smith (Captain)
- Hashim Amla
- Johan Botha
- AB de Villiers
- JP Duminy
- Faf du Plessis
- Colin Ingram
- Jacques Kallis
- Morne Morkel
- Wayne Parnell
- Robbin Peterson
- Dale Steyn
- Imran Tahir
- Lonwabo Tsotsobe
- Morne van Wyk (wicket keeper).
I’m fairly impressed with the selection. I just don’t understand why the selector left out veteran wicket keeper Mark Boucher and bowler Albie Morkel. I think that Cricket South Africa should give the South African public a reason for this. Let’s hope the Proteas don’t suffer from “Choking Syndrome” in the upcoming tournament. Running Wolf’s Rant would like to take this opportunity to wish the Proteas the best of luck in the tournament. Make SA Proud Boys!
