The Netherlands this week unveiled a potent lineup for the ODIs in South Africa and the series in Zimbabwe. The South African teams are slated to play on March 31 and April 2 in Benoni and Johannesburg, respectively, in both of those ODI Super League series.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen), Delhi Capitals (Nortje, Lungi Ngidi), Mumbai Indians (Tristan Stubbs, possibly Dewald Brevis), defending champions Gujarat Titans (Miller), Lucknow Super Giants (Quinton de Kock), Punjab Kings (Rabada) have South Africa players in the side.
“The top eight teams in the ODI Super League automatically qualify for the 2023 World Cup while the bottom five will have to play the World Cup Qualifiers along with five Associate teams. South Africa, currently at No. 9, are in a race along with West Indies, Sri Lanka and Ireland to book a direct World Cup entry. The BCCI understands the importance of the Netherlands series to us automatically qualifying for the 2023 World Cup,” CSA’s chief executive officer Pholetsi Moseki told ESPNcricinfo.
The SRH team management may need to look at Bhuvneshwar Kumar as the stop-gap captain once again till Markram is able to join the team. Bhuvi had led the side in IPL 2022 as well as former skipper Kane Williamson had joined the side late in the tournament.

Hardik Pandya’s GT will miss the services of Miller, who was instrumental in their title-winning run in IPL 2022. Miller scored 481 runs at an excellent average of 68.71 at a strike-rate of 142.73 with a top-score of 94 not out last year.
