In the match just to keep schedule scatheless, South Africa rested their arch batsman Hashim Amla. With the series always bagged by the home team, the third and final one day international at the Buffalo Park, Bangladesh would try to respite some pride from the tour which has been totally baffling for the home team.
Aiden Markram will replace Hashim Amla in the match on Sunday. 23 year old Markram made a wonderful debut against Bangladesh in the Test series scoring a phenomenal ton in the second Test following 97 in the first Test.
The absence of Hashim Amla would replenish some relief for Tiger bowling line up. One of the best hard hitters in world cricket Amla hit three hundreds against the visitors, two of them in the Test series along with an ODI ton in the first match of the series.
Bangladesh will face South Africa in a two match T20I series.
