Marizanne Kapp

Led by Laura Wolvaart, South Africa Women boasts a formidable lineup. Wolvaart, along with Marizanne Kapp, Anneke Bosch, and Nadine De Klerk, form the core of their batting unit. However, their bowlers, including De Klerk and Temi Sukhukune, failed to contain Sri Lanka in the T20Is. The absence of Chloe Tryon might pose a challenge, but players like Masabata Klaas and Temi Ducker will strive to fill the void.
