South Africa Cricket World Cup Squad - South Africa Betting Odds

South Africa are always there abouts in these cricket World Cups and in 2011 there is every reason to believe they will right up there in the outright betting odds once more but may just find one or two just too good.

Led by Graham Smith they will not lack for guile and determination and with the likes of Boucher, Kallis, Duminy and Dale Steyn to go to war with they have a squad capable of going all the way. The South Africans have been well backed for a number of years now but they do tend to come up short when under pressure, that will be a tag they will hope to shake off in 2011 as they aim to win the Cricket World Cup for the first time in their history.

South Africa have been drawn in Group B of the 2011 Cricket World Cup alongside the likes of India and England, but they should have no problem in reaching the next phase of the tournament and anything can happen from there. There weakness may come from their spin bowling which will be so important on the flat tracks on the sub-continent, they have a great seam attack but lack a real world class spinner in their ranks.

The 2011 South Africa squad will be made up of most of the current contracted players with one or two surprises likely to be involved.
