AB de Villiers has lost the toss and has been asked to bat first in their crucial Tri-Nation series tie against West Indies.
The Proteas go into this clash desperately in need of a victory to keep up to the pace of the Windies and Australia, who have two wins apiece. They go into it low on confidence, though, after surrendering a winning position against Australia on Saturday. The Proteas were 210-3 with plenty of balls left to play with, before they crumbled to 252 all out in a 36-run defeat.
Their batting was to blame in the opening defeat to the Windies, too, and a number of their experienced campaigners need to step up, on what should be a surface favourable to the batsmen, with the average first-innings score in St Kitts exceeding 280.
Tabraiz Shamsi will earn his second ODI cap at the expense of Aaron Phangiso, while Chris Morris returns from a hamstring niggle in place of Kyle Abbott, which will add a bit of pace and depth in the batting order.
