England have won the toss and will bowl again in their second T20 International against the Proteas at Taunton.
Hosting an international for the first time since 1984 in Somerset, England have their tails up and will fancy their chances of closing this series in overcast and humid conditions.
England left a trail of destruction in their nine-wicket romp of the South Africans at the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, as Alex Hales (47) and Jonny Bairstow (60) guided their side over the line with 4.5 overs remaining. AB de Villiers (65) and Farhaan Behardien (63) broke a South African record for the fourth-wicket stand, but it was a laboured effort, as 142-3 was never going to be enough to defend.
While it was a return to form of sorts for De Villiers, he needs to prove, as a leader, that he is capable of psyching up his men to get back to winning ways.
In light of the defeat, the Proteas have made three changes, with Chris Morris, Morne Morkel and Dane Paterson all coming in at the expense of Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius and Imran Tahir.
England have made three changes of their own, with Tom Curran coming in to make his debut on his home ground at the expense of the rested Mark Wood. Liam Plunkett is in for young spinner Mason Crane, while there’s also a debut for Liam Livingstone, with Alex Hales rested.
