In the batting department, the team management will be banking on the experienced duo of Hashim Amla and David Miller to contribute significantly which will help the team in posting a competitive total on the board. In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Kyle Abbott and Keshav Maharaj to provide important breakthroughs as they've already done in the tournament.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on captain Faf du Plessis and middle-order batsman Vaughn van Jaarsveld to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Tabraiz Shamsi and David Wiese to provide important breakthroughs.
