Hambantota - Proteas captain AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bowl first in their Group C clash against Zimbabwe here on Thursday.

Live scorecard

South Africa were boosted by the inclusion of Albie Morkel after the 31-year-old all-rounder was passed fit to play following a lower-back spasm which needed a fitness test before the match.

Zimbabwe brought in batsman Stuart Matsikenyeri and spinner Ray Price in place of Chris Mpofu and Malcolm Waller from the line-up that lost the first match against Sri Lanka by 82 runs on Tuesday.

The top two teams from each of four groups qualify for the Super Eights rouns.

Teams:

South Africa:

AB de Villiers (captain), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Johan Botha, JP Duminy, Jacques Kallis, Richard Levi, Albie Morkel, Morné Morkel, Robin Peterson, Dale Steyn.

Zimbabwe:

Brendan Taylor (captain), Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Elton Chigumbura, Craig Ervine, Graeme Cremer, Ray Price, Kyle Jarvis, Brian Vitori, Prosper Utseya.
