St Kitts - Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and chose to bat first
against South Africa in the fourth match of the tri-nation one-day
international series at Warner Park on Saturday.
Routed for just
142 by the Proteas in the last of the three matches in Guyana four days
earlier, Australia have made three changes for the re-match with a South
African side that leads the three-team standings on net run-rate over
the Aussies following that 47-run victory.
George Bailey replaces
the struggling Glenn Maxwell in the batting line-up while Mitchell Starc
and Nathan Coulter-Nile continue to alternate the key strike-bowling,
Starc filling the spot on this occasion.
All-rounder James Faulkner makes his first appearance in the competition at the expense of experienced off-spinner Nathan Lyon.
Rilee Rossouw ruled out of the tournament with a shoulder injury
sustained in the field last Tuesday at Providence, Faf du Plessis takes
his place in the South African batting line-up having recovered
sufficiently from a broken finger that has kept him out of action so far
on this Caribbean tour.
Fast-medium bowler Kyle Abbott replaces
left-arm wrist-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi at a venue which has a reputation
for high scoring given its relatively short boundaries.
Hosts West Indies, a point behind the other two teams, re-enter the tournament on Monday when they take on Australia.
