LIVE: Proteas v Pakistan - 2nd Test, Day 1
With selection the major talking point in the build-up to the Test, the Proteas eventually opted to go in without a spin bowler.
It means that Keshav Maharaj misses out while Vernon Philander returns from injury in front of his home crowd.
The Proteas will operate with four seamers as Philander joins Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada and Duanne Olivier in an attack that will want to make serious inroads into the Pakistan batting line-up in the opening session.
