Bavuma: “We looked at overhead conditions and we think in the morning there might be a bit of swing to exploit. Defending here on the Highveld is a challenge.”
Babar: “The wicket is very good. We are aiming for 300. We have left the previous match behind. Today’s match is very important. We have four changes. A lot of experienced players come in.” Legspinner Usman Qadir, son of the late Abdul Qadir, debuts.
