Both squads are quite similar in nature. Most of the top-players been left out, and some new faces who have done reasonably well in the domestic have been launched into the bigger platform. In this game Aaron Finch has to seize the momentum right from the beginning and go and at the Proteas hard.

The fact that it is a game which they have to win to stay alive in the three-match series may see them pull out all the stops. The South Africans would dearly love to continue their dominance in every aspect of the game, as they did in the first encounter at Adelaide—if they do so another triumph is on the cards.
