Led by Faf du Plessis, the Proteas will be looking to break their ICC World Cup hoodoo and lift their first ever 50-over trophy.
Last week, the Proteas camp prepared for the challenging tournament by climbing Table Mountain.
The 10 teams will play each other in a single round of matches – as was the case in the 1992 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The top four teams will then progress to the semi-finals.
Lord’s will host its fifth World Cup final on July 14.
South Africa play in two warm-up matches against Sri Lanka (Friday, May 24) and West Indies (Sunday, May 26) before opening their World Cup against hosts England on Thursday, May 30.
GOOD LUCK BOYTJIES!!
