EAST LONDON – Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to bat first in the third one-day international between South Africa and Bangladesh at Buffalo Park in East London on Sunday.

The Proteas, who have already secured the series, have handed debuts to Aiden Markram and Wiaan Mulder, while Temba Bavuma will open the batting alongside Quinton de Kock, with Hashim Amla rested.

David Miller and JP Duminy miss out in the middle-order, with Markram rewarded for fine form with the Titans.

Mulder, still a teenager, will provide the all-round option alongside Andile Phehlukwayo.

Bangladesh are still seeking their first win of a difficult tour.
