Teams Preview

South Africa

For this series decider, the home side will make five changes to their playing XI.

With experienced players like Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Kagiso Rabada flying to India for playing for their respective franchises in the Indian Premier League.

Janneman Malan, Wiann Mulder, Sisanda Magala and Beuran Hendricks will be slotted into the XI, while Kyle Verreynne will be included in the middle-order for this game.

In the previous game, South Africa delivered a pitch-perfect batting performance. Despite Markram once again failing to reach a half-century, Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma added 114-run stand for the second wicket to lay down foundations for the likes of Rassie van der Dussen and Miller to play their natural game.

For South Africa, Captain Temba Bavuma played exceedingly well and finished the innings with the top-score of 92 runs off 102 balls. He was well supported by the likes of Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller, who chipped in with scores of 80, 60 and 50 respectively.

After topping the bowling charts in the 50-over competition, Sisanda Magala could make his debut as Anrich Nortje will not be available due to his IPL commitments.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Lutho Sipamla, Keshav Maharaj and Beuran Hendricks to make crucial breakthroughs.
