The protease team has always been one of the toughest sides in the cricket history, but they have only managed to win the 1st season of ICC Champions Trophy hosted as ICC Knockouts Trophy in 1998. Though the final squad for Champions Trophy 2017 has not been introduced by CSA, the Chances are high that the players who are the of the South Africa squad against Sri Lanka in five match ODI series may be included in the South Africa team for this season of Champions Trophy.
The Protease team will be led by the Mr. 360 none other than AB de Villiers, who have led the South Africa team in many expeditions. The Protease skipper rejoined the squad after missing the ODI series last year in Australia. Though the protease team has been very impressive under the leadership of Ab Divillers but they couldn’t manage to win any big tournament. In the World Cup T-20 2016 South Africa ended their journey to world cup when they lost their match against England while scoring 229 runs in the first half, but the Joe Root made it possible to chase the high total with his 83 runs.
Quinton de Kock and HashimAmla, who have been outstanding with their bat in recent years can play an important role in the journey of the protease team to the Champions Trophy. Faf du Plessis and David Miller can also prove to be handy with their aggressive batting while adding quick runs to the board. Imran Tahir, whohas improved over the time with his bowling can trick the opposition batsman and he can strike with early wickets.
Along with the experienced players some youngsters have also been added to the squad for Siri Lanka ODI series as the Convener of the selectors Zoni said:
“We’re not building for the championship, we are building for 2019 World Cup. The focus for me is the 2019 World Cup and the championship is part of that. I am quite comfortable with where we’re at”
This combination of experienced and young cricketers may lead the protease team to world cup 2019 but it can also play an important role in Champions Trophy 2017 and who can say if the Protease team proves wrong their critics while winning the second title for the Champions Trophy.
