Toss South Africa chose to bowl vs West Indies
South Africa made four changes to the XI that lost to West Indies at the weekend. Markram, who was rested for that match, came in for Bavuma which left South Africa all change up top. Ryan Rickelton and Tony de Zorzi were carded to open, with Quinton de Kock left out. Markram was down at No. 3, with Reeza Hendricks unavailable after cutting his right index finger.
West Indies kept the same team that beat South Africa, and were happy with the decision to set the hosts a target again.
A fairly big crowd is expected in the university town of Potchefstroom, with today being a public holiday in South Africa: it is the Human Rights’ Day, which commemorates the 69 victims of the Sharpeville Massacre, killed by Apartheid police in 1960.
