Cape Town - Proteas skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat against Australia in the third match of the Triangular ODI series in the West Indies. 

The Proteas, who lost to the West Indies in the opening fixture of the series on Friday, need a win to draw level on points with both the hosts and Australia.

A win for Australia will put them firmly at the top of the points table. 

Titans spinner Tabraiz Shamsi will make his debut for South Africa and Wayne Parnell also makes his way into the team with Kyle Abbot and Chris Morris missing out. Morris is rested due to a tight hamstring. 

Australia have rested Mitchell Starc. He is replaced by Nathan Coulter-Nile.
