Here are their reactions:

South Africa will start their 2023 ODI World Cup campaign on October 7 against Sri Lanka at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. They will play against all the nine teams in the group stage with their last match scheduled on November 10 against Afghanistan at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. In the 2019 ODI World Cup, the Proteas could win just three out of nine matches and ended up in the seventh position on the points table. World Cup starts on October 5 between last edition’s finalists England and New Zealand in Ahmedabad.
