Kyle Verreynne could make his T20 debut as Wihaan Lubbe might be dropped from the playing XI for this game.

In the previous game, South Africa managed to post a competitive score of 188 runs, courtesy splendid half-centuries from Captain Heinrich Klaasen and Aiden Markram.

The big positive from the series opener was opener Aiden Markram finding form with the bat and scoring his maiden fifty for South Africa in the T20 format. He will be keen to continue his decent form in this fixture.

Besides Markram, Janneman Malan also looked good in his innings and scored 24 runs off 16 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes.

Captain and wicket-keeper Heinrich Klaasen produced an excellent innings for the side and smashed a crucial half-century with the help of two boundaries and four sixes. He was well supported by Pite Van Biljon, who chipped in with 34 runs off 24 balls.
