AB de Villiers has won the toss and chose to bat first as they look to go one step closer to a series whitewash against Sri Lanka.
With the series already sealed, the priorities turn towards closing out another whitewash series and being crowned the No 1 ODI side in the world.
The first part is out of the way, with the Proteas opting to set a target. Conditions take a back seat here with history telling you that 22 of the past 28 games at this pitch have been won by batting first.
It’s going to be yet another huge task for the Sri Lankans, who may be gaining invaluable experience with each match their young side plays, but they will also be desperately keen to place some bigger totals on the board, having not scored more than 200 yet, with only two half-centuries to speak of.
The hosts have made two changes to the bowling lineup, opting to hand Tabraiz Shamsi a go alongside Imran Tahir, while Wayne Parnell comes back in too after being left out at the Wanderers. All-rounders Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo have been left out.
The big news out of the Sri Lankan camp is that Dinesh Chandimal has been dropped after scoring just one half-century across the formats on this tour. Sanded Weerakkody moves in, while Nuwan Kulasekara comes back in for Eranga Lakmal.
