But as they took the field against Bangladesh, the side once again walked without regular skipper Temba Bavuma. While he missed the match against England due to illness, he has reportedly failed to regain full fitness with Aiden Markram taking over the captaincy once again.

Additionally, Markram at the toss revealed that Lungi Ngidi is also out of the XI with a niggle with Lizaad Williams replacing the star bowler.
