PAARL - Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to field in the second ODI against South Africa at Boland Park.

The Proteas currently lead the series 1-0 after thrashing the visitors by 10 wickets in the first match of the series on Sunday in Kimberley. Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla shared a record-breaking 282-run partnership for the first wicket.

The pair will hope to continue their merry-making on a gorgeous day in the winelands. The outfield may be a little bit slower than the Diamond Oval after the heavy rains the Western Cape experienced over the past couple of days.

The Proteas have made one change to their side with Farhaan Behardien replacing David Miller in the middle-order. Miller was seen to be undergoing a fitness test before play.

The Tigers have been boosted with the return of star opener Tamim Iqbal for this match.

South Africa: Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis (capt) AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Farhaan Behardien, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dane Paterson, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das (wk), Shakib al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mohammad Saifuddin, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed.
