Kagiso Rabada,  Anrich Nortje, David Miller and Rilee Rossouw are back in the side for the T20I series. At home, the Proteas have named a full-strength squad for the three-match series. The Proteas are the number four-ranked T20I side while the Windies are ranked seventh currently.

Pooran, Jason Holder, Johson Charles, Powell, and a good set of T20I bowlers make West Indies an evenly matched team to their opponents. Among the bowlers, Sheldon Cottrel has been selected in the squad for the series. The likes of Akeal Hosein, Oned McCoy, Alzarri Joseph and Odean Smith makes a good all-round attack.
