• WI bowl first at Centurion

    January 28, 2015
    Quinton de Kock

    The West Indies have won the toss and opted to make use of the overcast conditions in the fifth ODI at Centurion.

    A significant rain delay has seen the game reduced to 42 overs a side. The bad news is that more rain is forecast for this evening, and so the game may be further reduced.

    Quinton de Kock has made a full recovery from an ankle injury and will play at Centurion. De Kock will open the batting and keep wicket in this the final match of the five-game ODI series.

    Hashim Amla is back in the side after being rested for the fourth ODI in Port Elizabeth. Amla replaces Morné van Wyk at the top of the order, and will lead the Proteas in the absence of AB de Villiers, who has been granted a break. Fast bowler Morné Morkel is another senior player who has been given the day off.

    Rilee Rossouw has been retained, but will make way for De Kock at the top of the order. The other change sees quick bowler Marchant de Lange coming into the line-up.

    The West Indies have made one change to the XI that won the fourth ODI. Narsingh Deonarine comes in for Leon Johnson.

    The Proteas currently lead the series 3-1.

    South Africa: Hashim Amla (capt), Quinton de Kock (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, JP Duminy, Farhaan Behardien, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Marchant de Lange, Kyle Abbott.

    West Indies: Chris Gayle, Dwayne Smith, Narsingh Deonarine, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Jonathan Carter, Darren Sammy, Andre Russell, Jason Holder (capt), Carlos Brathwaite , Sheldon Cottrell
