“The team wasn’t just built over the last few months, it’s a process we started in 2017 and we identified some areas we needed to strengthen. There were strategic selections made across various camps and tours we had and played before that.

“The players have gotten along well and by leaps and bounds, and it’s good to see that we can now, with injuries and key personnel out of the squad, find strategic replacements to replace them, which is important and says a lot about the depth we have created through this program,” Clinton du Preez added.

South Africa was one of four nations, along with Australia, England and India who qualified for the competition based on their placing in the ICC Women’s Championship between 2017 and 2020, with the head coach, Hilton Moreeng charges currently ranked second in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) Rankings.

“In 2020 when we went to New Zealand we clinched the ODI series and from there it set the tone for us to go and push for the ODI World Cup and I think it’s important that all the hard work has been put in, including the selections for the playing conditions we see ourselves facing,” said Clinton du Preez.
