Quinton De Kock:
Newly elected skipper Quinton De Kock will lead the team from the front and is a brilliant batsman. He scored 107, 11, and 69 runs in the ODI series and quick 31 in the first T20I.
Rassie Van Der Dussen:

Bavuma is a technically strong batsman and scored 98 runs in the first ODI and 43 runs in the last match opening the innings.
Pacer Ngidi is a wicket-taking pacer and proved it in his last two matches taking five scalps including three wicket-haul in the first T20I.
He has been one of the world’s most fearsome pacers at his time and still has the potential to perform well for South Africa cricket. His form in MSL and BBL was good and can be a match-winner on his day. He bowled a good spell taking one scalp in the first T20I.
