Cape Town - The Proteas have won the toss and will bat first in the third and deciding T20I against Sri Lanka at Newlands.
Captain Farhaan Behardien had no hesitation in opting to make first use of the wicket under blue skies in Cape Town on Wednesday.
AB de Villiers, as expected, returns to the side for his first international appearance in over six months. He comes in for Theunis de Bruyn.
South Africa made two other changes with Cape Cobras seamer Dane Paterson included for his Proteas debut at the expense of Aaron Phangiso while Reeza Hendricks cracks the nod instead of Heino Kuhn at the top of the order.
The series is tied at 1-1 after South Africa won a rain-affected clash in Pretoria before they came unstuck in Sunday's low-scoring Wanderers affair.
