Sune Luus will lead the South African team in the upcoming 2022 Women's World Cup, with Chloe Tryon continuing as the vice-captain. Opener Lizelle Lee, the Women's ODI cricketer of 2021, returns to the fold having missed the home series against West Indies after testing positive for COVID-19. The team will rue the services of Dane van Niekerk who has been out of action for a while due to an ankle fracture. Anneke Bosch, Nadine de Klerk and Raisibe Ntozakhe will be the travelling reserves for the Proteas during the World Cup.
