This is a seriously balanced team and the most interesting would be how their spinner go. All three are quality bowlers and Maharaj these days has made huge strides and in a genuine match winner, especially in conditions which should suit him. Shamzi is a handful unless you can pick him and Von Berg is a decent spinner. The pace bowling attack is probably the best in the world so this will be ultimate test.

It will come down to the role of the spinners and without AB, there is a huge hole in the batting. I can't see SA playing with 2 spinners and 2 seamers so will be interesting to see the options they settle on. Elgar the opening batter is a more than a useful spinner too.

For a female cricket fan from Tanzania, according to your profile, you have such a vast knowledge of the game, Stormy. Well done!
