South African star Gerald Coetzee will probably be the first names to have all eyes set on him throughout the tournament. Known for his lethal yorker and death bowling, Goetzee proved to be a star for his side during the ODI World Cup 2023. He ended up as South Africa’s highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 20 wickets in eight games. Coetzee had an on-and-off campaign at the IPL with 13 wickets in 10 games. However, he has always emerged as a reliable wicket-taker and will be an integral part of the South African pace attack.
