LIVE: Proteas v Zimbabwe - 2nd T20

The Proteas lead the three-match T20 series 1-0.

The Proteas have made four changes as Dane Paterson, Heinrich Klaasen, Robbie Frylinck and JP Duminy have come in.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe have only made one change, as Solomon Mire comes in.

Earlier this week, Cricket South Africa announced that leg-spinner Imran Tahir has been released for the remainder of the T20 series after his blistering 5/23 performance in East London.

The decision was taken to release Tahir from the squad as the Proteas look to give other players an opportunity.
