In the Spotlight:

Alike the first Test host South Africa is going into the series without their key pacer trio Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Marco Janashen, as they have opted to play in the ongoing Indian Premier League. However, in the sporting track of Port Elizabeth, Dean Elgar, Keshav Maharaja, and Simon Harmer are expected to do bulk damage.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Liton Das, Edadot Hossain, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will surely be under the spotlight for Bangladesh.

Opener Tamim Iqbal, who was ruled out of the first tie due to stomach complications, is set to return in the XI after the Sri Lanka series held in May 2021.
