The selectors have opted not to bring back Hashim Amla as the Proteas look to make it 2-0 in the second ODI against Australia.
An explosive start to the series saw Quinton de Kock’s record-breaking 178 guide the hosts to a six-wicket victory in Centurion just two days. Now, 10 years after the miraculous 438 game, the sides return to the Wanderers, with the South Africans hoping for more of the same fireworks.
Australia have decided to shake up their bowling lineup following their wayward efforts on Friday, with Joe Mennie and Chris Remain both coming in to make their debuts, with Dan Worrall and Scott Boland perhaps a bit unlucky to be ousted after just one match.
Faf du Plessis revealed that the selectors opted to keep an unchanged side, despite Hashim Amla being fit and ready to go. Continuity is good, but not finding space for one of their best and most experienced players seems an odd call.
South Africa: Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn
Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steve Smith, George Bailey, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, John Hastings, Joe Mennie, Adam Zampa, Chris Tremain
