Temba Bavuma’s return to form as captain is a huge positive for the team. Quinton de Kock played a quick fire knock of 48 runs in 26 balls at a strike rate of 184.62.
The middle order is inexperienced with Rassie van der Dussen being the most expereicned. Proteas are missing their senior players David Miller, Heinrich Klassen in the middle order. Their main bowlers Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada are not part of the squad.
Gerald Coetzee was the lone bright spot along side young lanky allrounder Marco Jensen. Coetzee picked up 3 wickets in the 2nd ODI at an economy of 5.7. Marco Jensen was tad on the expensive side He scored 17 runs at a strike rate of 121.43. Jensen will be key to the Proteas success in the 3rd ODI.
