The world’s number 1-ranked Test nation has the best win percentage in Twenty20 Internationals (62.09 at the end of January) and has not lost any of the 14 bilateral series of two matches or more that it has played since its first T20I in 2005. But South Africa has yet to progress beyond the semi-final stage at an ICC World Twenty20 tournament. It lost out to eventual winner Pakistan by seven runs in the 2009 semi-final at Nottingham, but, in the two most recent tournaments, it has not progressed beyond the Super Eight stage. It won five and lost three of its eight T20Is in 2013 and finished the year strongly in the 50-over format as well, with victories by 141 runs and 134 runs over India. All eyes will be on 21-year-old Quinton de Kock, the left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman who made his international debut in the T20 format in December 2012 and finished 2013 with three successive ODI centuries against India. Pace bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel have 89 T20I wickets between them.
