LIVE: Zimbabwe v SA

Rilee Rossouw and Mthokozisi Shezi have been selected to make their ODI debuts, and will be the 112th and 113th caps for South Africa respectively.
Rossouw and Shezi are part of three changes to the Proteas' XI, with Marchant de Lange making a long awaited return to International cricket following a string of injuries. The trio replace Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and Imran Tahir. Amla and de Villiers have been rested following a heavy workload in the last few months.
Faf du Plessis is playing in his 50th ODI for South Africa, and will captain the side in de Villiers' absence.  

South Africa XI: Faf du Plessis (captain), Quinton de Kock (wk), Rilee Rossouw, JP Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Wayne Parnell, Kyle Abbott, Aaron Phangiso, Marchant de Lange, Mthokozisi Shezi.
Zimbabwe XI: Elton Chigumbura (captain), Richmond Mutumbami, Sirkandar Butt, Hamilton Masakadza, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Luke Jongwe, Prosper Utseya, John Nyumbu, Tinashe Panyangara, Tafadzwa Kamungozi.
