LIVE: Proteas v England - 5th ODI at Newlands 

The Proteas have made one change to their lineup with Rilee Rossouw replacing JP Duminy, while England remain unchanged.

The series currently stands at 2-2 although the Proteas will feel that they have all the momentum following their fightback in the last two one-day internationals after losing the first two in the series.
