Proteas win toss, bat first in 4th ODI

2014-11-21 06:12

South Africa captain AB de Villiers has won the toss and elected to bat in the fourth limited-overs international against Australia, chasing a win to save the series.

Australia, leading the five-match series 2-1, batted first in the previous three matches, winning the first and third games in Perth and Canberra.

Allrounder Mitchell Marsh was released from the Australia squad today so he can play for Western Australia in the domestic Sheffield Shield.

Imran Tahir did not start for South Africa because of a knee injury sustained in the Canberra match, while Morné Morkel was also left out of the starting XI.

The last match is scheduled for Sunday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
