Probably the top performer
Janneman Malang is one of the brightest prospects for South Africa. He fought well against Sri Lanka in three ODIs that recorded 162 runs, including a 121-run knock in his second match. At home, the batter is even more dangerous and he wants to add to the tally. Given that the team has lost quite a few decent players from their lineup, it is also the responsibility of Malang to play through the innings.
Wayne Parnell will play his first international match since 2017. The left arm pacemaker is a very good bowler, boasting 94 wickets with 65 ODIs. He must have gained more experience playing in Worcestershire over the last four years. He is also the first Colpack player to return to play in South Africa and will be eager to influence his comeback.
