South Africa vs England. 3 T-20 and 4 Test

Battle of New Inclusion

For South Africa, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy and Kagiso Rabada have been rested with the Test series in mind, while Faf du Plessis is back home in South Africa awaiting the birth of his first child. England's omissions, meanwhile, include Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid - four integral members of the team that carried England to the World T20 final last year. But, again, one man's absence is another man's opportunity. 
Eoin Morgan, England's captain, has already confirmed that each of the five uncapped members of his squad will be given a maiden appearance in the coming three games.
For South Africa, Tabraiz Shamsi, the left-arm wristspinner who just missed out on selection for the Champions Trophy, and Dane Paterson, the right-arm quick who enjoyed himself on this same ground a fortnight ago, claiming 7 for 27 in a thumping win for South Africa A against Hampshire might get chance in team. 
De Villers wants his young players to seize their chances to impress in the coming three matches

England crushed South Africa by nine wickets in the opening game of the T20 series at the Ageas Bowl. With early wickets for their seamers, control from their spinners and a well-judged run chase, England took a lead in the three-match series and completed victory with 33 deliveries remaining.
"That was as close to a complete performance as you can ask for," England captain, Eoin Morgan, said afterwards. "The bowlers did an unbelievable job and the two spinners held their nerve really well. Then the way we came out and batted took the game away from them."
From a South African perspective, this was a worryingly lame performance. While there were a couple of flashes of brilliance from de Villiers - one sweep for six off Chris Jordan and one off Willey - his half-century took 49 balls and he struggled for the fluency for which he is noted.
"We were outplayed tonight," de Villiers said. "We found it really difficult to get the ball away and when they did give us something to hit, we didn't put it away. I missed out on a couple. It happens: you don't always hit them in the middle.
