Zimbabwe face South Africa in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series at Bulawayo on Tuesday. South Africa, who are currently leading the series 1-0 after a strong 93-run win in the first game, are without the services of their prime pacers Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Vernon Philander in this series.

Both teams will look to get some much needed practice before ICC World Cup 2015. Recently, Zimbabwe had lost to South Africa by nine wickets in solitary Test match, and will look to put up a better show in the ODIs.

After the ODI series, both teams will participate in a triangular series starting August 25, which will also feature Australia.

Teams:

Zimbabwe: Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Elton Chigumbura (c), Brendan Taylor, John Nyumbu, Sean Williams, Hamilton Masakadza, Sikandar Raza, Brian Vitori, Luke Jongwe, Prosper Utseya, Neville Madziva.

South Africa: AB de Villiers (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Kyle Abbott, Jean-Paul Duminy, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Ryan McLaren.
