Centurion - South Africa won the toss and chose to bat in their third and final One Day International (ODI) against India, in Centurion, on Wednesday.


South Africa have already won the series with two comprehensive wins, in Johannesburg and Durban, and were looking to secure a 3-0 whitewash against India.

With heavy rain falling in recent days, the players were greeted with sunny conditions for the toss, but there were a number of clouds looming above.

South Africa made three changes to the side, with Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel rested and Henry Davids, Wayne Parnell and Imran Tahir replacing them.

For India, Yuvraj Singh makes a return for Ajinka Rahane.
