Cape Town - Australia could have two debutants in their side for the second Test against the Proteas starting in Hobart on Saturday.
The first, and most likely, comes in the form of Joe Mennie, who is largely expected to replace injured seamer Peter Siddle.
But, according to the cricket.com.au website, their could be another newcomer in middle order batsman Callum Ferguson.
Ferguson, who has already played 30 ODIs for Australia at an average of over 40, would probably come in for all-rounder Mitch Marsh if he was selected.
"There's possibilities that we could go in with six genuine batsmen but we'll wait and see in the morning when we can have another look at the wicket and what the weather's doing," captin Steve Smith said.
The weather for the second Test is not expected to be ideal, with rain forecast for the opening two days of the match.
The Proteas lead the three-match series 1-0 after their memorable win in Perth.
Play starts on Saturday at 01:30 (SA time).
