Cape Town - Faf du Plessis has won the toss and elected to bowl in the first ODI against Australia at Centurion on Friday.

Top-ranked Australia made one change to their line-up that beat Ireland easily in a warm-up game earlier in the week, with opening batsman Aaron Finch replacing Usman Khawaja.

Daniel Worrall kept his place in the bowling attack after making his international debut against Ireland.

South Africa are without batsman Hashim Amla, who is ill, and captain AB de Villiers, who is out with an injury for the series-opener at Centurion.

Bowlers Dale Steyn and spinner Imran Tahir return after being rested for South Africa's warm-up game against Ireland.

Teams:
