Cape Town - Th Proteas have won the toss and elected to field in the second Momentum ODI at Axxess St Georges on Wednesday. 


The Proteas have made two changes to their team, with Ryan McLaren and Lonwabo Tsotsobe replacing Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel. Morkel has been rested for the match following a recommendation from the Proteas' medical team because of heavy bowling loads in recent weeks.

The match has been reduced to 45 overs per side after early morning showers delayed the start. The first PowerPlay is 9 overs, the second batting PowerPlay remains 5 overs and must be completed by the 40th over. Each bowler is allowed a maximum of 9 overs.

The Proteas will be wearing black armbands following the passing of Graeme Smith's grandmother on Monday evening.

This is the Proteas' 500th match since re-admission.

Pakistan won the first ODI by 23 runs at Newlands last Sunday.

The third and final ODI is scheduled to take place at Centurion Park on Saturday.
