Can Tristan Stubbs be the key player for South Africa at T20 World Cup 2022?

22-year-old Tristan Stubbs who just made his international debut this year in June has been included in South Africa’s t20 World Cup Squad. Victor Mpitsang who has joined the new national Convenor says, “He’s young, exciting and he’s fearless. He showed that at the international level but he’s also shown that domestically. He’s ticked many boxes, one of them not being fearful when he plays for South Africa and there’s enough experience in the team to guide him.” He’s exactly what the team requires going into the World Cup. 

“Someone like Tristan Stubbs who was not in the frame a year ago has done incredibly well to force his way into the mix based on his performances and his selection should be an inspiration for every young player out there.” Mpitsang persists.

Tristan, showing off his batting ability, had scored 119 runs in 7 matches in T20 internationals. Besides batting, Stubbs can further take charge of bowling too and he’s also an impressive fielder which makes him a complete package for the upcoming World Cup. 

Recently Sunrises Eastern Cape bagged Stubbs into their squad at an auction price of R9.2 million. “It is crazy! I am still shaking. It is just awesome to be a part of this tournament.” Says Tristan after his base price skyrocketed. This young talented player received his maiden World Cup call this year and he will fly out to India along with the rest of the 15-player squad and the three reserves to play a three-match series against the hosting team.

“The youngsters don’t come in with any preconceived ideas of how it’s supposed to be. They just play their natural game. We’ve all seen Tristan Stubbs, for example, come out and play his natural game. And that’s exactly what we need,” Lungi Ngidi said on his Betway Insider interview.

One of the best things about Stubbs is that at such a young age he knows how to keep playing his game even under tremendous pressure. He is also the youngest Protea player to hit a half-century in T20I formats. While batting in the lower order, under 6 or even lower than that, Tristan holds the third highest individual score for South Africa. He is also known to be a big six hitter too.

Since the early days of domestic matches, this young man indicated he had high potential to be a key player in the World Cup T20 squad. Raised in Knysna, Stubbs always showed a knack for Cricked since childhood. His school, Grey High School, had only lost 4 out of 36 matches and was also known to produce the highest number of South African junior cricketers from school.

Later he went on to score the highest runs 287 with an average of 71.8 in 2018 Khaya Majola Week. When it came to senior cricket Stubbs played his first t20 match against England and his knock of 72 runs off 28 balls left a huge impression on everyone. There is no guarantee that the rising star Tristan will shine in this World Cup but it is certain even if he fails he will still be in the game for a long run.
