  • The Proteas are licking their wounds after another series defeat to Pakistan, with head coach Mark Boucher seeking ways to improve the team.
  • Boucher suggested adding another left-handed batsman to fill the top order void left by Quinton de Kock and David Miller.
  • Sisanda Magala could solve death bowling worries if he is fit to start in the first T20 on Saturday.

Stumped at how to stem the successive series losses his team has suffered, Proteas head coach Mark Boucher is desperately looking for ways to improve the team after defeat to Pakistan in the ODI series.

South Africa lost the third ODI decider in Centurion by 28 runs when a depleted Proteas side, bereft of five IPL stars and top-order mainstay Rassie van der Dussen, succumbed to another series defeat to Pakistan.

The Proteas lost both the Test and T20 series in Pakistan in January and were looking for better outcomes on home turf.

However, it wasn't to be, as a Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam inspired the Pakistan team who tore the hosts to shreds.

Boucher said after Wednesday's match that the Proteas needed to explore including more left-handed batsmen in the line-up.
