South Africa World Cup Schedule 2023

Background and Overview

With the release of the ICC World Cup 2023 schedule, anticipation in the cricketing world is at an all-time high. From October 5 to November 19th, twelve magnificent stadiums will host this major event, which India will be hosting.

Notably, on October 7th in Delhi, South Africa's squad, famed for their amazing experiences in previous ICC championships, is scheduled to start its matches against the second qualifying team.

A Quick Glance at Venues

  • Starting & Ending Point: It is an honour for Ahmedabad to host the tournament's opening ceremony and the tournament's final game.
  • Semi-final Locations:Kolkata and Mumbai have been selected.
  • Other Host Cities: Each of the stadiums in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune will host approximately five cricket matches. Hyderabad is notably an exception.

South Africa's Past World Cup Pursuits

The two most memorable runs for South Africa in the ICC World Cup were in 1999 and 2015. In both cases, they advanced to the semifinals before Australia and New Zealand intervened. The Proteas are one of the best teams that haven't advanced to a World Cup final despite their potential.

The Team's Evolution

Following the retirement of cricketing icons like as AB De Villiers, Faf du Plessis, and Hashim Amla, the squad has gone through a period of change. The leadership for the white-ball format changes frequently, especially depending on the opposing team. The last World Cup was led by Faf, and supporters are keen to see who takes the helm this time.

Tournament Format

  • Structure: The round-robin format, in which each elite team plays the others once, will be used for the 2023 edition.
  • Climax: Four dominant teams will advance to the semifinals, with the top two teams competing for the championship. This resembles the format of the 2019 FIFA World Cup.

South Africa's Previous ICC Endeavors

The South African squad isn't particularly proud of their performance in ICC competitions. They left during the league stage of their last spell. However, they have a berth this year courtesy to the Super League points standings.
