Lizelle Lee makes a return to South Africa squad for World Cup

Sune Luus will captain the South African team in the upcoming 2022 Women’s World Cup, with Chloe Tryon continuing as her deputy. Lizelle Lee, the Women’s ODI cricketer of 2021, returns to the team having missed the home series against West Indies due to COVID-19. The team will continue to miss the services of Dane van Niekerk who has been out of action for a while due to an ankle fracture.

Anneke Bosch, Nadine de Klerk, and Raisibe Ntozakhe will be the traveling reserves for South Africa during the World Cup. Apart from the 15-member squad and the three reserve players, South Africa also has an 11-member contingent of support staff that includes head coach Hilton Moreeng and assistant coach Dillon du Preez.

South Africa begin their campaign on March 5 with the game against Bangladesh in Dunedin. They then travel to Tauranga for their games against Pakistan and England on March 11 and 14 respectively. They play against host New Zealand on March 17 in Hamilton while Wellington is their next destination for their games against Australia (March 22) and West Indies (March 24). Their final league game is against India in Christchurch on March 27.
