South Africa’s Top 3 Bowlers across Formats in 2023 of  World Cup glory. Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi bowled their Semi-Final game against Australia. It has been an eventful year for the South African cricket Team. Despite playing some amazing cricket, the Proteas yet again fell short of World Cup glory. Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi bowled their hearts out during the Semi-Final game against Australia in Kolkata. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc though steered the team through and won the title beating India in the final. 

2023 has been a decent year as far as the South African bowlers are concerned. The world witnessed the emergence of Gerald Coetzee who has reminded the fans of the legendary Dale Steyn. 

In this story, we cast a closer look at the top three wicket-takers for South Africa in 2023. 

Kagiso Rabada – 44 Wickets

The 28-year-old pace bowler recently breached the 500-wicket mark in international cricket. The feat occurred during the first Test versus India in Centurion where he picked a fifer in the first innings. Kagiso Rabada is one of the finest bowlers in the world today and has taken over the mantle of being the spearhead of the South African pace attack. 

Rabada’s spell during the Centurion Test reaffirmed why the 28-year-old is considered a lethal bowler. Combining his pace and ability to swing the ball, Rabada had the Indian batters on a string like a master puppeteer. 

Marco Jansen – 45 Wickets

At age of the 23, Marco Jansen has made quite an impact on the game with the bat and ball. The tall and lanky left-arm seamer has picked 45 wickets during 2023 and has bowled his team to a few memorable wins. 

Marco Jansen doesn’t possess the pace of Mitchell Starc or Nandre Burger but can swing the ball at will. His wicket of Shubman Gill during the recent Test Match is evidence of his growing stature in International cricket. 

Gerald Coetzee – 47 Wickets

If South African fans needed a replacement for Dale Steyn their prayers were answered. Gerald Coetzee took the ODI World Cup 2023 by storm with his pace bowling and wicket-taking abilities. While he is yet to cement his place in the Test team there is no denying that the 23-year-old is on the path to achieving great success.
