Centurion - All-rounder, David Wiese, has been selected to make his debut for the Proteas in the first Momentum One Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday.
Wiese, along with wicketkeeper batsman, Morne van Wyk, are the new faces to the side that lost 2-1 to Bangladesh last month.
New Zealand’s Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl, in what is the first match between the two sides since the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final in March.
Faf du Plessis has been ruled out of the ODI series after failing to recover from an injury to a tendon in his left knee.
He has been advised a rest period of three weeks to ensure a full recovery ahead of the tour to India at the end of September.
