Summary

That's the plan for the Test team, but whether that will happen tomorrow, that still needs to be decided."Conditions will be one of the deciding factors in South Africa's eventual starting XI, and what is expected to be a slow track could blunt the effectiveness of Duanne Olivier's short-ball tactics, and bring a spinner like Maharaj into the game as an attacking option."They've been struggling with pace the last season and a half," du Plessis said of Kingsmead's grounds curation. I don't think we'll consider a five bowler attack against someone that has got express pace, but we are considering that option because there are a lot of medium pacers playing in their team, and obviously losing their spearhead in the spin department in Rangana Herath, there's a lot of experience missing there."While Maharaj's return to the starting XI will mean South Africa have to tinker with their side to find the right balance, du Plessis said that the challenge was a good one for his team."It's good for us to have options," he said.
