Cape Town - South Africa will be without batsman David Miller for the fourth ODI against Australia, after he picked up a groin injury in the third ODI in Durban.

Miller scored a blistering century that saw the Proteas win the match by four wickets, chasing down a massive 371 to win, the second highest ODI chase in history.

But he picked up the injury in the early part of the knock, and will miss the last two matches in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. Farhaan Behardien will likely replace him.

As for the bowlers, an extra spinner could be added in place of paceman Dale Steyn now that the series is won, as they look to manage his workload.
