The first team expected to qualify from this group will be the perennial contenders South Africa. The Proteas once again have an incredible squad with players who have dominated at the highest level.  Barring the out-of-form Quinton de Kock, all batters like Henrich Klassen, Reeza Hendricks, David Miller and Tristan Stubbs are in magnificent form. 

Talking about the bowling attack, the Proteas have some of the best pacers in the world with the trio of Gerald Coetzee, Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen taking the charge. Regarding their slower bowlers, the Proteas have an experienced spin-bowling pair of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi, who dominate in the Caribbean.
