Dominica - West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first in the fourth one-day international against South Africa at Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica on Sunday.

Live Scoring

The home side, three-nil down in the five match series, have little but pride to play for.

In an effort to turn their fortunes around the Windies have somewhat surprisingly dropped fast bowler Jerome Taylor with seamer David Bernard called up in Taylor’s place.

AB de Villiers makes his 100th ODI appearance today and he will want to build on his impressive recent form which has seen him score four centuries and a fifty in his last eight knocks.

Having already secured the series the Proteas have rested Dale Steyn and Alviro Petersen with Lonwabo Tsotsobe and JP Duminy earning recalls.


West Indies - Chris Gayle (capt), Dale Richards, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Denesh Ramdin (wk), David Bernard, Ravi Rampaul, Sulieman Benn.

South Africa - Graeme Smith (capt), Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers (wk), David Miller, JP Duminy, Ryan McLaren, Johan Botha, Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Charl Langeveldt.
