Bulawayo: South Africa will hand debuts to top-order batsman Rilee Rossouw and left-arm seamer Mthokozisi Shezi in Thursday's third and final one-day international against Zimbabwe.

Having already sewn up the series by winning the first two games by 93 runs and 61 runs, the Proteas will offer the pair an opportunity to impress as they consider their squad options for next year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

While Rossouw will come in for Hashim Amla, who has returned to South Africa for a short period of rest before next week's triangular series against Zimbabwe and Australia in Harare, Shezi will replace one of the seamers from the first two matches.
