South Africa captain Faf du Plessis, pace spearhead Dale Steyn and Temba Bavuma remain in doubt for the first Test against Australia starting March 1, whereas senior batsman AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock are expected to be fit.

According to ESPNCricinfo, Steyn is unlikely to be considered for selection till the third Test of the four-match series, but a call will be taken on full-time captain du Plessis and Bavuma will be taken before the opening Test.
