Windies ask Proteas to bat in St Kitts

Cape Town - The West Indies have won the toss and elected to bowl in the sixth match of the Tri-Nation One-Day International (ODI) series against South Africa at Warner Park in St Kitts on Wednesday.

The Proteas have made two changes, with all-rounder Chris Morris coming in for Kyle Abbott, and Aaron Phangiso being rotated for Tabraiz Shamsi.

In some statistical news, Imran Tahir is two wickets away from 100 ODI wickets. If he achieves this in the current match, he will become the fastest South African bowler to reach the milestone (58 matches), bettering the record set by Morne Morkel, who achieved the feat in 59 matches.
