The Proteas will also miss the services of Anrich Nortje due to a hip injury. Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen will be in the pace line-up for the visitors in Nortje's absence.

On the other hand, the Kiwis will get back to Test cricket after drawing the Test series against Bangladesh. Tom Latham will lead the team in Kane Williamson’s absence owing to an elbow injury. With Ross Taylor retiring, the hosts have a huge task on hand to fill their middle-order void.
