South Africa squad for T20 world cup 2010
Graeme Smith (captain)
Filed under T20 World Cup 2010
Barring 1992 World cup which marked South Africa’s re-entry into International cricketing arena, Proteas have been tipped as one of the contenders for each of four 50 over world cups and two World T20 tournaments since then.. sadly, they’ve never progressed into finals, let alone winning the crown.
Now, May 2010 comes with another chance for African giants to claim the biggest prize in cricket, a world cup, to be played in West Indies with all 12 best teams participating.
South Africa’s T20 world cup 2010 squad will be captained by Graeme Smith who’s played little cricket in last one year oweing to array of injuries (Beefy returned from IPL 3 after 2 games thanks to finger injury). Jacques Kallis, the experienced allrounder, has been named as the vice-captain.
Herschelle Gibbs has been given another opportunity after good IPL season recently and will form a strong middle order for South Africans squad which also includes AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Loots Bosman and world record holding wicket keeper Mark Boucher.
Rory Kleinveldt is the surprize pick as he’s played just 1 T20 game previously and made just 3 conceeding 20 off just an over he bowled. Rory, a good death bowler they say, was selected when Wayne Parnell got sidelined due to groin injury.
