South Africa: Temba Bavuma(c), Reeza Hendricks, Dwaine Pretorius, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen(w), David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
South Africa have won the toss and they will bowl first.
While Bhuvneshwar Kumar did all the damage inside the powerplay in Cuttack, a certain Umran Malik alongside will definitely strengthen the India bowling lineup against the mighty South Africans. While some of the Proteas stars have faced Malik in IPL 2022, the majority is yet to face the speed sensation and India could bank on that.
India will be wary of Heinrich Klassen factor on Tuesday. The right-hander simply took the game away from India single-handedly in Cuttack and will be aiming to continue his momentum in Vizag too.
