Anrich Nortje, who is the joint second-leading wicket-taker with eight scalps, has been in splendid form, and he will look to make life tough for Nepal's batters.

The Proteas would also hope that their top order, including Quinton De Kock, Reeza Hendricks, skipper Aiden Markram, and Tristan Stubbs, regain their form before the Super Eight.
