Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has revealed what he deems the secret to success at the Cricket World Cup is.

Rabada is expected to be named in the Proteas 15-man squad, which will be announced on April 18.

This will be Rabada's first World Cup appearance for the Proteas, as they look to lift the elusive title.

The Proteas will kick off their 2019 Cricket World Cup campaign against hosts England on May 30 at the Oval.

"My World Cup aspirations is for the team to win the competition. As a player I'd like to contribute to the best of my ability," Rabada told Niche Sport Media.

"I don't think there's a secret weapon to win the World Cup but I'll say team work. If we can perform as a team and not as individuals then we've got a really good chance."
