Johannesburg - The Proteas have won the toss and will bowl first in the third ODI against Sri Lanka at the Wanderers.

South African skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and had no hesitation in saking the visitors to bat first on a day that seeks to raise cancer awareness. 

David Miller misses out on the match with an injured finger and he is replaced by Farhaan Behardien while the other change sees Dwaine Pretorius come into the side for Wayne Parnell. 

The Proteas go into the match with a 2-0 lead in the five-match series, having already won in Port Elizabeth and Durban.
