Proteas skipper suspended for final Test
South Africa will be without captain Faf du Plessis due to suspension for the third and final Test against Pakistan at the Wanderers.
The Proteas skipper has been suspended for one Test and fined 20 percent of his match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate during South Africa's nine-wicket win in the second Test at Newlands.
South Africa have already won the series as they hold a 2-0 lead and will be looking to complete a whitewash despite Du Plessis' absence.
The hosts could look to either Aiden Markram or Hashim Amla to replace Du Plessis as captain for the final test, which begins on January 11.
