Zimbabwe captain Prosper Utseya won the toss and decided to bat first in the second One-day international at Buffalo Park. Zimbabwe made two changes in the side, which played first ODI at Bloemfontein. Tawanda Mupariwa has been replaced with Piet Rinke, while Terrence Duffin's injury during warm-up has allowed Tafadzwa Mufambisi a place in the order.

South Africa also have made two changes. Herschelle Gibbs and Charl Langeveldt have been rested in place of Justin Kemp and Alviro Peterson, the right-handed opener, who has earned his first international cap.

The start of the match was rescheduled to 15.30 pm local time due to the damp outfield.


South Africa: Loots Bosman, Alviro Peterson, Boeta Dippenaar, Jacques Kallis (capt), Jean-Paul Duminy, Justin Kemp, Mark Boucher (wk), Shaun Pollock, Robin Peterson, Andre Nel, Mkhaya Ntini.

Zimbabwe: Piet Rinke, Vusi Sibanda, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Brendan Taylor (wk), Stuart Matsikenyeri, Elton Chigumbura, Tafadzwa Mufambisi, Prosper Utseya (capt), Ed Rainsford, Anthony Ireland.
