England win the toss and chose to bowl.
Eoin Morgan suggests “chasing, later on, has a little bit of an advantage” with the possibility of the weather closing in again. “Pitch looks good but has been under covers for some time, more about the overheads,” he adds. England are unchanged, Morgan looking for improvement from the team beaten by seven wickets in Cape Town.
Quinton de Kock admits he would have bowled, too, but says it “still looks like a good deck, so we’ll have to make good use of it first up”. South Africa have brought in an extra spinner, Bjorn Fortuin replacing Lungi Ngidi, who is only recently back from injury, with de Kock suggesting the surface could be a little tacky. “With the weather being dull, it may stay the same throughout the game,” he says.
South Africa team: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk, capt), 2 Reeza Hendricks, 3 Temba Bavuma, 4 Jon-Jon Smuts, 5 Rassie van der Dussen, 6 David Miller, 7 Andile Phehlukwayo, 8 Beuran Hendricks, 9 Lutho Sipamla, 10 Tabraiz Shamsi, 11 Bjorn Fortuin.
