South African skipper Temba Bavuma has been recovered from the injury and available to play in this match.

There is no questioning about the South African bowling lineup as they have Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi as their pace trio and ICC number 1 T20 Bowler Tabraiz Shamsi as the spinner.
