South Africa won the toss and chose to bat first in their Cricket Cup semi-final against Australia at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday.

With plenty cloud overhead, there were concerns the match would be delayed but the clash was set to begin on time at 10.30am SA time.

Proteas captain Temba Bavuma claimed his place in the starting XI as an injury cloud hung over the player after he injured his hamstring last week. Bavuma said he was not at 100% yet, but that it would ‘just have to be good enough’.

In the only change to the team, Tabraiz Shamsi comes in for Lungi Ngidi. It means South Africa would employ three seamers and two spinners in their bowling attack.
