Proteas make two changes for second T20 against West Indies

Marco Jansen and Kagiso Rabada have replaced Anrich Nortje and Bjorn Fortuin.


South Africa won the toss and chose to bowl against West Indies in the second T20 International in Centurion on Sunday.

The hosts made two changes to the team that lost the opening match at the same venue the day before, with all-rounder Marco Jansen and fast bowler Kagiso Rabada replacing paceman Anrich Nortje and spinner Bjorn Fortuin.

The tourists also made two changes, with Jason Holder and Raymon Reifer replacing Roston Chase and Alzarri Joseph.

The Proteas must win the match to keep their hopes of a series victory alive.
