South Africa retained the same team that went down to Australia by 93 runs in the rain-affected series-opener at Centurion on Wednesday.

Michael Clarke's Australia made one change following their winning start to the one-dayers, recalling vice-captain and opening batsman Shane Watson after he recovered from a hip injury.

Young allrounder Mitchell Marsh - who made his ODI debut in the first game - misses out in favour of Watson.


South Africa: Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla (captain), Jacques Kallis, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Mark Boucher (wk), Johan Botha, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
