New Zealand lead the series 1-0, after winning the first ODI, by one wicket, in Paarl.

Faf du Plessis is skippering the Proteas in the absence of AB de Villiers, who was dished out a two-match suspension for South Africa’s slow over rate in Paarl.

Hashim Amla was ruled out after he strained his right quad muscle on Monday afternoon and the injury flared up overnight.

Left-handed batsman David Miller and ODI debutant Farhaan Behardien make up the batting line-up.

New Zealand made one change to their side, bringing in the more in-form Colin Munro for Rob Nichol. Munro is also making his ODI debut.

Teams: South Africa: Graeme Smith, Quinton de Kock (wk), Colin Ingram, Francois Du Plessis (capt), Farhaan Behardien, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Robin Peterson, Rory Kleinveldt, Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobo

New Zealand : BJ Watling, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum (capt, wk), Kane Williamson, Colin Munro, James Franklin, Jimmy Neesham, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliot, Kyle Mills, Mitchell McClenaghan. – Sapa
