South Africa had a few positives with the bat during the T20 series. Captain Quinton de Kock continued his good run of form. Rassie van der Dussen impressed everyone with his batting. David Miller could get a look into the playing XI. 


George Linde was impressive with both bat as well as the ball in the T20 series. Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi look set to share the new ball.
