The Proteas lead the three-match ODI series 1-0 after defeating Australia by 74 runs in Paarl last Saturday.

South Africa have only made the one change with Jon-Jon Smuts coming in for the injured Temba Bavuma.

Bavuma has withdrawn from the remainder of the ODI series against Australia due to a right hamstring strain.

Rassie van der Dussen has taken Bavuma's place in the ODI squad.

Australia also made one change, with spinner Ashton Agar coming in for fast bowler Josh Hazlewood.
