South Africa odds to win T20 World Cup are 11.00

South Africa

South Africa had a great 2021 T20 World Cup and they will look to go all the way this time and win the 2022 T20 World Cup. The team will be starting with an advantage as their first two matches are against relatively weaker teams who they will look to defeat comprehensively to improve their net run rate as well as boost confidence.

These first two games will also give them a chance to better adapt to Australian conditions and be better prepared to face the top teams in their group which include Pakistan and India.

South Africa is in the process of putting together a great T20 side and should be ready to go by the time the T20 World Cup approaches.

A lot will be riding on their bowlers as they have some of the best fast bowlers in T20 cricket who will be greatly aided by the Australian pitches. The likes of Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, and Dwaine Pretorius are in great form and they will dearly want to continue this form in the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Their batting is also looking very good with the in-form Rassie van der Dussen, Quinten de Kock, and Aiden Markram all making run in recent T20 games. David Miller has also turned a corner recently by becoming more consistent and will be a key player for the Proteas during this T20 World Cup.

South Africa tends to go into most World Cups as strong contenders but they have shown time and again that they tend to choke when it comes to big games. This is one of the reasons why the Proteas have never been the number one betting favorite when it comes to ICC World Cups.

South Africa’s Odds To Win T20 World Cup 2022

As per Bet365, South Africa stands 6th in the list of favorites to win the 2022 T20 World Cup with betting odds of 1001.00. The team will have to face the favorites, India as well as Pakistan who is ranked as the 5th betting favorite to win the World Cup.

South Africa have already crashed out of the 2022 T20 World Cup. They lost the all-important game against Netherlands as Pakistan went through to semis.

The draw makes this a difficult one for South Africa but this high-caliber team has a decent chance of causing multiple upsets and becoming T20 World Champs.

South Africa Players To Watch Out For

Rassie van der Dussen

Rassie was the highest run-scorer for South Africa in the 2021 T20 World Cup, scoring 177 at an average of 59.00 with a high score of 94. His batting was one of the reasons that South Africa was able to win 4 out of their 5 matches in the tournament.

He has continued his form in T20 cricket as he was the second-highest run-scorer in the series against India. The in-form Rassie will be a great asset for South Africa and they will need him in his best form to have a chance of reaching the finals in the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Aiden Markram

Markram has been in phenomenal form this season as he had a great IPL 2022 where he scored runs consistently, playing supporting as well as attacking roles. He is also currently in the top position in ICC Men’s rankings for T20s.

Markram was the second-highest scorer in the last World Cup and while he didn’t play for South Africa in the recent series against India, he is in really good form and is definitely a player to watch out for.

Anrich Nortje

In a team filled with top fast bowlers such as Ngidi and Rabada, Nortje has made his name by bowling fast and staying consistent. He also has had great success in IPL 2022 and is turning into one of their best bowlers.

In the recent series against India, Nortje was the highest wicket-taker as well as the most economical bowler with 9 wickets and an economy of 5.37. He will be an essential player in South Africa’s campaign to win the 2022 T20 World Cup.

South Africa Prediction For T20 World Cup 2022 

Considering that South Africa will be fielding a team similar to the 2021 T20 World Cup, they should definitely make the semi-finals this time around. Most of the players have performed well in the recent series against India as well as the IPL 2022 which is an advantage for the team.

However, South Africa is grouped together with two in-form teams, India and Pakistan, and they will need to defeat one or both of these teams to reach the semi-finals which will not be easy.

South Africa have betting odds of 1001.00 to win the 2022 T20 World Cup.

South Africa have what it takes to reach the semi-finals but considering their record in ICC tournaments, it will take something special from the team to reach the final and win the 2022 T20 World Cup.

South Africa’s Performance At The Last T20 World Cup 2021

South Africa had a great 2021 T20 World Cup as they managed to win 4 out of their 5 matches, only losing to Australia.

At the end of the group stages, they ended up with 8 points much like England and Australia but due to an inferior net run rate (NRR), the South African team didn’t make the semi-finals and was eliminated in the group stages.
