Cape Town - The South Africa 'A' team won the toss and elected to field in their opening 'A' Triangular Series encounter against India at Groenkloof Oval in Pretoria on Wednesday.
The hosts will hope to get the series off to a positive start after a disappointing England tour.
They will be captained by Khaya Zondo.
This is the same series that Australia 'A' pulled out of due to a payment dispute between the players and Cricket Australia.
The other side in the competition is Afghanistan.
