Bangladesh once again won the toss but this time decided they should bowl first in the second ODI against the Proteas at Boland Park in Paarl.

Following an encouraging batting performance last Sunday in Kimberley, the Tigers will feel they can improve even more given that they have influential opener Tamim Iqbal back from injury.

The Proteas have made one change with Farhaan Behardien coming in for David Miller.

The left-hander, who played in his 100th ODI at the weekend, is struggling with a groin strain.

Proteas: Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis (c), AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Farhaan Behardien, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Dane Paterson, Imran Tahir.
