Hashim Amla: "I was pretty close to thinking on the same lines (talking about opting to bowl). But probably we would have batted first as well. Hopefully, we will get a good total on the board. We have lost Vernon (Philander) for the rest of the series, Dale (Steyn) for this game. Three changes for us. Vernon, Dale and Simon Harmer miss out. JP (Duminy), Morne (Morkel) and Kyle (Abbott) are playing this game."
...
Virat Kohli: "We are going to bowl first. It's been raining for the last week here, the pitch has been under covers. So there must be a lot of moisture. We predict that the moisture will stay through the day and probably for tomorrow's morning session as well. This is a surface that is more binded. It all depends on how much sun we get. We are playing a balanced combination. Ishant Sharma comes back for Umesh Yadav and we have Stuart Binny in place of Amit Mishra."

South Africa XI: Stiaan van Zyl, Dean Elgar, Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla(c), AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Dane Vilas(w), Kyle Abbott, Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir
