East London – New Zealand skipper Brendan McCullum won the toss and invited South Africa to bat first in the second KFC Twenty20 international match played at Buffalo Park on Sunday.

For New Zealand Martin Guptill replaces Peter Fulton at the top of the order.

For South Africa, Morne Morkel and Aaron Phangiso replace Dale Steyn and Chris Morris. – Sapa
