AB de Villiers, has anchored the innings for South Africa with a calculated half-century. He walked out to bat with South Africa at 16 for two, but along with Hashim Amla steadied the ship, forging a 99-run partnership before Amla got run out on 62. David Miller has joined de Villiers at the crease now and has got a start.

Earlier in the innings South Africa won the toss and elected to bat. They were in deep trouble with opener Rilee Rossouw and Faf du Plessis both falling on ducks leaving South Africa in a spot of bother at 16 for two. Jerome Taylor has taken two wickets so far. Newly crowned skipper, Jason Holder also bowled well early on but has nothing to show for his effort.
