The South African cricket team has one of the strongest bowling lineups in this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup as the like of Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and others would be lethal on the seaming English wickets.
The Proteas batting also seems to be in good hands as senior players including Hashim Amla, and Faf du Plessis would carry the weight of a batting lineup which has some talented young batsmen.
Amla has had a decent practice before the start of the tournament as he scored a century against the West Indies in a warm-up match recently. The opening batsman is nearing another career milestone as he only needs 90 runs in 3 innings to become the fastest batsman to score 8000 ODI runs.
The 36-year-old already holds several such records as he is the also the fastest batsman to reach 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 runs in ODI cricket, surpassing some of the legends of the game.
