Bloemfontein - Zimbabwe won the toss on a good OutSurance Oval batting pitch and automatically decided to bat first in the first Standard Bank Pro20 match against South Africa in Bloemfontein on Friday.

Batsman Colin Ingram and seamer Juan Theron, both of the Warriors, will make their international debuts for South Africa.

Veteran batsman Grant Flower, who has earned a shock recall to the Zimbabwe squad, is not playing because he has still not arrived in the country due to problems with his travel documents.


South Africa
- Graeme Smith, Loots Bosman, Colin Ingram, JP Duminy, David Miller, Heino Kuhn, Ryan McLaren, Johan Botha, Wayne Parnell, Morne Morkel, Juan Theron.

- Brendan Taylor, Hamilton Masakadza, Chamu Chibhabha, Tatenda Taibu, Charles Coventry, Elton Chigumbura, Keith Dabengwa, Prosper Utseya, Graeme Cremer, Ed Rainsford, Christopher Mpofu.
