Toss: Zimbabwe won the toss and decided to bat in the second Twenty20 international against South Africa at Senwes Park on Friday.

South Africa made four changes from the team that won the first match in East London by 34 runs.

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir, man of the match in East London, was released for the last two matches, with the selectors wanting to have a closer look at fellow spinner Tabraiz Shamsi.

Batsmen JP Duminy and Heinrich Klaasen, all-rounder Robbie Frylinck and fast bowler Dane Paterson replaced Gihahn Cloete, Christiaan Jonker, Junior Dala and Tahir.

Solomon Mire replaced Chamu Chabhabha in the Zimbabwe team after recovering from a hand injury.

Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza said he wanted the top order batsmen to put runs on the board. "I thought we were closer than it looked (in the first game) after we had a bit of a collapse at the top. We have to try to make sure we don’t look to lose too many up front."

"I was going to bowl first," said South African captain Faf du Plessis. "There is a bit of rain about and there may be some dew at night."
