According to the ESPN Cricinfo report, South African captain Faf du Plessis revealed that Vernon would come back into the side considering his record at the venue. Mohammad Abbas will be back to boost the bowling lineup and considering the form he was in 2018, South Africa will find the going tough against him. South Africa will now be looking to take an unassailable lead and clinch the series as they face Pakistan in the second Test at Cape Town. SuperSport Live will also provide the online streaming of the series on the app and website.

Pakistan's defeat in the first Test was hugely frustrating for them as the collapse from 101/1 in their second innings to 190 all out saw them throw the match away and it was one which they had taken control of but their middle order once again let them down.

Pakistan could ring the changes, with seamer Mohammad Abbas in line to return after missing the Boxing Day Test with a shoulder complaint.

Asad Shafiq could make way for Mohammad Rizwan in the middle order after scoring just 13 runs across two innings at Centurion but batsman Haris Sohail is set to sit out the rest of the series with a knee injury. Duanne Olivier, who came into the XI as a replacement for Vernon Philander, delivered a man of the match performance and that certainly will put the management in a fix.

The Proteas may not yet have decided on their starting XI for the second Test against Pakistan at Newlands, but the one certainty is that Duanne Olivier will play. The live action of SA vs PAK 2nd Test Day 1 will begin at 02:00 p.m (IST) with toss at 01:30 p.m. For viewers in Pakistan, PTV Sports will telecast the match live.

The visitors have also made just a single change to their starting eleven, with the unsafe Vernon Philander replacing spinner Keshav Maharaj.
