LIVE: Proteas v Pakistan, 4th ODI "Pink Day"

Pakistan have made two changes to their lineup with captain Sarfraz Ahmed suspended for two ODI's and two T20's, linked to the Andile Phehlukwayo incident during the second ODI in Durban.

He is replaced as captain by Shoaib Malik who added, ""We wanted him, but the incident ... we all know what has happened. I don't want to comment about it. But they've given me this opportunity, and I want to do my best."

South Africa have made one change with Imran Tahir replacing Tabraiz Shamsi. Quinton de Kock will be playing in his 100th ODI game for the home side.
