Delhi - Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat in the fourth and final Test against South Africa at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Thursday.

Live Scoring: India v South Africa

The Indians brought in paceman Umesh Yadav in place of leg-spinner Amit Mishra in the only change from the side that won last week's Test in Nagpur to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

The rain-hit second Test in Bangalore was drawn after the first day's play.

The top-ranked tourists brought in opener Temba Bavuma, paceman Kyle Abbott and spinner Dane Piedt in place of Stiaan van Zyl, Kagiso Rabada and Simon Harmer.

The Kotla wicket is likely to assist fast bowlers early on before breaking up later in the match to aid the spinners.

Teams:

India - Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma.

South Africa - Hashim Amla (captain), Dean Elgar, Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Dane Vilas, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir, Temba Bavuma, Kyle Abbott, Dane Piedt.

Umpires: Kumar Dharmasena (SRI) and Bruce Oxenford (AUS)

TV umpire: C.K. Nandan (IND)

Match referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
