SA vs IND 5th ODI: South Africa wins toss; India to bat

Port Elizabeth: After registering their first win in the fourth of the six-match One-Day International (ODI) series, South Africa won the toss and invited India to bat first in the fourth match scheduled to be played at Port Elizabeth here on Tuesday.

Stand-in Proteas skipper Aiden Markram will be hoping to shorten the series lead from 1-3 to 2-3 after they succeeded in maintaining their victorious ‘Pink Day’ record in the previous match at the Johannesburg.

India has retained the same side from the previous match with Shreyas Iyer being included and Kedar Jadhav again being ignored.

South Africa has left out all-rounder Chris Morris for slow left-arm chinaman bowler Tabraiz Shamsi.

An interesting aspect to watchout for in the match would be the legendary MS Dhoni, who is just 46 runs short of 10,000 runs in ODI Cricket.

Here are the two teams:

India:

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah

South Africa:

Aiden Markram (c), Hashim Amla, Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungisani Ngidi, Morne Morkel and Tabraiz Shamsi
