Visakhapatnam — South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma won the toss and elected to field first against India as they look to clinch their Twenty20 international series with Tuesday's third match.
The tourists, who lead the five-match series 2-0, come in unchanged in Visakhapatnam from their previous four-wicket win over India.
"Same thing, bowl again," Bavuma said after winning his third toss in a row.
"The (pitch) colour is different, has a yellowish tinge to it. Feels hard, looks like a good wicket to bat. Just want to focus on the areas we can improve."
India, who kept the same team, have failed to defend totals in their two losses but skipper Rishabh Pant expects a better performance from his team in the must-win match.
"We would have bowled as well. But as an Indian team we are not looking at the toss too much, just looking to play good cricket," said Pant.
"We spoke about getting better in execution. Planning and tactics are all fine, but if we can execute better we will be fine. Looks like a better wicket, but feels a bit soft underneath."
