Along with him, key players like Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir have also flown to India. A Nortje and Lungi Ngidi have been kept out of the side due to their injuries. South Africa have opted to keep David Miller as their wicket-keeper as he kept wickets for them in the T20I as well. Chris Morris and Dane Pretorius are likely to come into the side after their successful season in the domestic one-day tournament. Aiden Markram could possibly get his T20I debut cap.

Sri Lanka hopes to bounce back after a narrow loss

Sri Lankan side will hope to continue their good bowling performance which was back by some really good spin bowling from D de Silva, Akila Dhananjaya and Jeffrey Vandersay. Lasith Malinga too seemed to found his rhythm back but with Suranga Lakmal not getting enough games, the team management may introduce him in this game replacing Isuru Udana.

The flat pitch in Centurion hasn't really been so easy for batting. Run-scoring is easy with the new ball but the ageing ball struggles to reach the batsmen on time making it difficult. The weather should be fine and temperatures are likely to be in the mid-20s.
