Stubbs and Brevis have been left out of South Africa’s World Cup squad.

Stubbs will not play in the World Cup because the selectors prefer a more experienced group.

Tristan Stubbs and Dewald Brevis, both young batsmen, have been left out of South Africa’s 15-man squad for the upcoming ODI World Cup. Despite being selected for the ODI series against Australia, the duo has not been considered for the main event. Wayne Parnell was also left off the list.

Squad: Temba Bavuma (C), Gerald Coetzee, Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Marco Jansen, Heinrich Klaasen, Sisanda Magala, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen

Brevis, Stubbs, and Parnell have all been released from the squad for the five-match series, with the left-arm seamer expected to continue his recovery from a shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Quinton de Kock has announced that he will retire from one-day international cricket after the World Cup.

Eight of the 15 players chosen for the World Cup have been called up for the first time, including captain Temba Bavuma. South Africa’s pace arsenal has been bolstered by the additions of Gerald Coetzee, Sisanda Magala, and Marco Jansen to the experienced trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi, indicating that they are playing to their strengths.

South Africa is also boosted by the return of left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, who suffered an achilles injury in March. He has recovered completely and will play in the third T20I against Australia on September 3. Tabraiz Shamsi, a left-arm wrist spinner, joins the spin department, and Bavuma can also rely on part-time off-spinner Aiden Markram.

The batting lineup includes Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, the in-form Heinrich Klaasen, and the explosive David Miller, as well as de Kock, who will play his final ODI.

The team led by Bavuma will begin their World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka on October 7 in Delhi.
