TOSS NEWS: Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first in the second Twenty20 international against South Africa at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Monday.

The hosts have decided to retain the same team which played in the first T20I at the same venue despite the four-wicket defeat.

Pakistan have decided to make two changes to their winning combination from the first match.

Fakhar Zaman will be missing out on the match due to a "leg allergy" and has been replaced by Sharjeel Khan who makes his comeback to the national side four years after his involvement in the PSL fixing scandal.

Mohammad Hasnain has been called in to replace Harris Rauf.

A win today will help Pakistan take a 2-0 lead in the four-match series which will make it impossible for them to lose the series.
