With Faf du Plessis being rested, South Africa will face Pakistan in the second T20I at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday, February 3, 2019.

The match will start at 5:30 PM PKT, 2:30 PM SAST, 12:30 PM GMT.

The Proteas won a close encounter in Cape Town earlier this week to draw first blood. Pakistan's stand-in captain Shoaib Malik tried his best but fell short by just six runs. The visitors will like to make a comeback against a depleted South African side.

Janneman Malan called up into the side

The Proteas captain Faf du Plessis has been rested for the last two T20Is.

David Miller will be leading the side in his absence. Quinton de Kock who missed the previous game will also miss the entire series.

Janneman Malan has been named as his replacement and could take du Plessis place in the side while Gihahn Cloete will take the gloves.

Junior Dala's performance in the previous game was not good and he could be replaced by Lutho Sipamla. Other than this, there won't be any changes in the Proteas side as they look to seal the series.

Shoaib Malik birthday:

Hafeez likely to return in place of Ali

Mohammad Hafeez was asked to sit out from the previous game due to a niggle in the hamstring, and according to the Cricbuzz report, he will return in the side for the second game. Asif Ali has been short of runs lately, and Hafeez could well come into the side in his place.

The Wanderers has a surface perfect for batting and the bounce only helps the batsmen to score runs freely. The short boundaries on either side help the batsmen attack the spinners and that could be a defining role in this game. The stadium would be baked in the sunshine as the match will be played during the afternoon.
