Rassie van der Dussen has recovered from injury as the Proteas bat first in the all-important third T20I against Pakistan in Centurion on Wednesday.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam won the toss and elected to field first, with the two teams locked at 1-1 in the series.
Van der Dussen missed the opening two encounters with a quad problem, which also ruled him out of last week’s final ODI at SuperSport Park.
He comes in at No 3 for Wihan Lubbe, who featured in the previous two T20Is in Johannesburg. Pakistan won the opening encounter over the past weekend, before the Proteas responded with a clinical performance on Monday.
Kyle Verreynne once again misses out on selection, while the Proteas stick with the pace attack of Sisanda Magala, Beuran Hendricks and Lizaad Williams.
Proteas: Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Pite van Biljon, Heinrich Klaasen (c; wk), George Linde, Andile Phehlukwayo, Sisanda Magala, Beuran Hendricks, Lizaad Williams, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Pakistan: Muhammad Rizwan, Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf.
