The T20 World Cup 2024 is all set to kickstart on 2nd of June and it promises to be a cracking tournament this time around, with 20 teams locking horns for the ultimate glory. South Africa are one of the top teams in the tournament, but have constantly underperformed in T20 World Cups. They are known as chokers, and over the years, somehow they have managed to justify that tag, leaving their supporters heartbroken more often than not.

Their quality though has been never in doubt, and this time around too, they have plenty of match-winners capable of changing the complexion of the game both with the bat and ball. So, let's see who will be those three players who can help grab maximum points in your Dream11 teams.

Three Bankable South African Players For T20 World Cup 2024

Quinton de Kock

Quinton de Kock is one of the finest batters in the rainbow nation and his role as an opening batter will be crucial for South Africa. He is an experienced cricketer who has scored runs all over the world and if he gets going, the Proteas will be in the happy state more often than not.

Why pick Quinton de Kock?

Quinton de Kock was in brilliant form in World Cup 2023 and his brilliant batting at the top of the order was the major reason of South Africa's success in the group stage of the tournament. As an opener, he will bat most of the overs and if he gets set, he generally scores big. 

Also, he has the temperament for a big tournament like World Cup, so there is a high possibility that he will be bring consistency onto the table again after a lacklustre IPL season. So, Quinton with all the shots in the book is surely one of the must-pick players from the South African team for this T20 World Cup.

Aiden Markram

Aiden Markram, the captain of the side will have a key role to play at number 4 for South Africa. He has the ability to mould his game according to the game situation and all eyes would be on the talented right-hander and his leadership in this World Cup.

Why Aiden Markram?

The conditions in the Caribbean and USA are likely to be slow and slow, and batters might have to apply themselves. In that case, a role of a number 4 batter becomes critical and Aiden Markram with his adaptive technique might be the one who score consistently in the middle order. He also bowls handy off-breaks and that makes him a good fantasy pick and can fetch lot of points in this World Cup.

Heinrich Klaasen

Heinrich Klaasen is one of the most explosive batters in world cricket currently, and his finishing touches would be very important for South Africa. He has played a big role in South Africa's success in the last couple of years, and it is imperative that he gets going again.

Why Heinrich Klaasen?

The South African wicketkeeper will bat at number 5 in this World Cup and he is known as one of the finest spin-hitters in world cricket currently. He was in decent form in IPL 2024 as well, and if he bats for 20-30 balls, he will hit lot of boundaries that will naturally give a lot of fantasy points in Dream11 teams.

He is a wicketkeeper too, and that will also give additional points, and that makes him a hot asset for a Dream11 team.
