Benoni - Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat in the fifth and final one-day international against South Africa at Willowmoore Park on Sunday.

Pakistan fielded the same team that won the fourth match in Durban by three wickets to level the series at 2-2.

South Africa made two changes. Fast bowler Morné Morkel returned to action for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in the second Test match last month, replacing Rory Kleinveldt.

Live scorecard

South Africa were without opening batsman and Test captain Graeme Smith because of what was described as a chronic left ankle injury which kept him off the field for most of Pakistan's run-chase in Durban.

He was replaced by 20-year-old left-hander Quinton de Kock.

Teams:

South Africa: AB de Villiers (captain, wicketkeeper), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Colin Ingram, David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Ryan McLaren, Robin Peterson, Dale Steyn, Morné Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Imran Farhat, Kamran Akmal (wicketkeeper), Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan.

Umpires: Billy Bowden (NZL), Johan Cloete (RSA)

TV umpire: Kumar Dharmasena (SRI)

Match referee: Andy Pycroft (ZIM)
