South Africa wins toss, bowls in 2nd ODI vs NZ

South Africa stand-in captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and opted to bowl first against New Zealand in the second one-day international at De Beers Diamond Oval on Tuesday.
Du Plessis replaced the suspended AB de Villiers as captain for the host, which lost the series-opener by one wicket over the weekend.
South Africa fielded a changed team from the loss at Paarl, giving a one-day debut to batsman Farhaan Behardien, promoting wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock to opener, and bringing in Morne Morkel for fellow fast bowler Dale Steyn.
Behardien replaced Hashim Amla, who had a right thigh injury. David Miller was in for De Villiers.
New Zealand picked middle-order batsman Colin Munro for his ODI debut and also promoted wicketkeeper BJ Watling to the top of the order.
