The Proteas are undergoing a blood transfusion under interim coach Enoch Nkwe.
And the 36-year-old has promised fans that the result of it will be entertaining.
Nkwe’s new-look Proteas will be on display for the first time on Sunday when they face hosts India in the first of three T20Is.
With new backroom staff, a new coach, new captain in Quinton de Kock and a new team, the coach believes it’s also the perfect time to change the DNA of the team.
As they look to drain out the bowling-heavy plans of ex-coach Ottis Gibson, Nkwe says: “It is the start of a new chapter
“We are, as a cricket team, entertainers.
“I’m hoping the type of cricket we play, people will be able to read and understand what sort of brand we want to play.
“It’s a new chapter with new characters.
“We are in the process of refining and I know the guys are very excited to go out there and play exciting cricket.”
Entertainment means nothing without results and Nkwe adds: “If you look at the group, we’ve got good enough experience.
“The captain [De Kock] has played a lot of cricket in India.
“We have fresh blood, but we will remain competitive.
“We want to walk away with series win - we’re here to win and while we understand the opposition is strong and it’s in their backyard, we’re going to give it 100 percent.”
