Wiaan Mulder will make his T20I debut with the Proteas batting first again after Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first in Friday’s fourth and final clash in Centurion.
The visitors take a 2-1 series lead into the deciding match with South Africa needing nothing but victory to take something home from the four encounters.
Mulder already has ODI and Test experience under the belt and comes in as one of two changes alongside spinner Bjorn Fortuin.
Pite van Biljon and Beuran Hendricks are the two players making way with George Linde again expected to bat high up the order. Sisanda Magala and Lizaad Williams are the two seamers in the attack with Shamsi the third spin option.
Janneman Malan and Aiden Markram will be hoping to continue their good form at the top of the order with Markram already bagging three-straight half-centuries so far this series. Rassie van der Dussen slots in at No 3 again, while Heinrich Klaasen moves up to No 4 in the batting lineup.
Proteas: Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, George Linde, Andile Phehlukwayo, Wiaan Mulder, Sisanda Magala, Lizaad Williams, Tabraiz Shamsi
Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Hassan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Harris Rauf.
