It was a high-scoring first game and the second game is expected to be played on the same lines as well. Avishka Fernando scored a century in the first game and would look to keep up his form. Keshav Maharaj will be leading the Proteas in the place of Bavuma. Without their regular skipper, it will be interesting to see how the visiting team stage a comeback in the series.

The template remains the same. The team winning the toss is likely to bat first with chasing becoming tricky in the second innings. For pace bowlers, there will be good carry with enough pace to work with.
