Senuran Muthusamy batted and bowled at SuperSport Park, but with Nortje ruled out, Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer will also be considered for the XI. South Africa may also consider using an extra batsman in the second Test, with Ryan Rickelton being the obvious choice.

South Africa has yet to name a replacement for Anrich Nortje:

Anrich Nortje took 6/84 in South Africa’s 87-run victory in the first Test in Pretoria, including 5/36 in the first innings when his frighteningly fast bowling turned the tide in favor of the home team. As South Africa decided not to call up a substitute, one of their two available spinners, Keshav Maharaj or Simon Harmer, who was rested in the first game, is expected to return.

The Proteas can plan for an additional spin option in the form of Keshav Maharaj or Simon Harmer because the Wanderers have had a lot of turns this season. Wiaan Mulder, a seam bowling all-rounder, could play on his home ground. Helping his team defeat Western Province last week, Lions spinner Bjorn Fortuin put up a total of 9/129 on the Wanderers.
