Cape Town - The Proteas will make a few changes for the third one-day international against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn are back after missing the first two games in the series. Amla will replace Colin Ingram who has since returned to South Africa to play for the Warriors in the One-Day Cup, while Steyn could possibly replace Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Skipper AB de Villiers hinted there would be more changes for the clash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, after the batting line-up failed dismally in the first two games.

De Villiers did not intimate who would be sacrificed by but according to Wednesday's Cape Times, the struggling Faf du Plessis could make way for Quinton de Kock.

Coach Russell Domingo also said the batting department will be "freshened up" but indicated he would discuss the matter further with De Villiers before making a final decision.

Play starts from 13:00 on Wednesday with the Proteas line-up to be announced shortly before play commences.

The five-game series is currently tied at 1-1.
