Harare - South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first in their Twenty20 Tri-Series match against Bangladesh at the Harare Sports Club on Tuesday.

The match, which started 15 minutes late because South Africa had mixed-up the start time, may not have full international status, but both teams will be eager to test their T20 strength ahead of the World Twenty20 to be held later this year.

Bangladesh did not enjoy the best start to the competition when they went down to Zimbabwe by 11 runs in the opening match of the tournament.

A number of senior Proteas, including Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, have been rested for the tournament but South Africa still boast a formidable pace attack with Marchant de Lange, Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Wayne Parnell in the team.

Richard Levi will partner stand-in skipper Hashim Amla at the top of the order.

They will have to make do without the services of opening batsman Tamim Iqbal, who suffered a thigh injury in the Zimbabwe match. His place has been taken by the 19-year-old Anamul Haque.

Teams:

South Africa:

Hashim Amla (captain), Richard Levi, Colin Ingram, Justin Ontong, JP Duminy, Albie Morkel, Robin Peterson, Dane Vilas (wk), Wayne Parnell, Marchant de Lange, Lonwabo Tsotsobe

Bangladesh:

Anamul Haque, Mohammed Ashraful, Ziaur Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (captain, wk), Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza, Elias Sunny, Abdur Razzak, Jahurul Islam, Abul Hasan
