Fatullah - The Proteas have lost the toss and will bowl first in their ICC World Twenty20 warm-up match against Bangladesh "A" at Fatullah on Tuesday. 

AB de Villiers will captain the side, with Faf du Plessis sitting out due to a hamstring injury.

"Faf experienced tightness during the third KFC T20 against Australia on Friday evening," said Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee.

"Further assessment revealed a Grade 1 strain to his right hamstring.

"He has been receiving intensive treatment and will be rested for the two warm-up matches in an attempt to make sure he is ready for the first match on Saturday.
"Dale and Morné have responded well to treatment and will be given a full run in the warm-up matches to assure us of their full fitness."
The match is an unofficial fixture and both sides are allowed to make use of all 15 players in the squad.
South African line-up: AB de Villiers (captain), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), JP Duminy, David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Albie Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Beuran Hendricks, Dale Steyn, Morné Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso.
