South Africa's morale has reached new heights, as the legendary batsman, AB De Villiers has made his way back to the playing eleven after seven months of hiatus. The hosts will not be aiming to make a change in the winning formula, and they will be sticking to the same eleven which played the first game.

For the Proteas, J P Duminy will serve as the second spinner. Imran Tahir will be leading the bowling attack, and he will be given adequate support by Parnell and Morris.

Sandun Weerakkody who debuted in the first ODI will be missing out this match, as he scored only 5 runs in the previous game. Jeffrey Vandersay will be also expelled from the playing eleven, and he will be replaced by Lahiru Kumara. Kumara has that extra ability to pick quick wickets and this is expected to help the visitors.
