Proteas elect to bowl in the 4th ODI against Sri Lanka

Aiden Markram

South Africa’s cricket Captain Faf du Plessis has won the toss and opted to bowl in the fourth One-Day International against Sri Lanka in Port Elizabeth. With Hashim Amla not available due to a family illness, Reeza Hendricks gets another opportunity at the top of the order.

He will open the innings with the in-form Quinton de Kock.

Aiden Markram, who has scored buckets full of runs in the domestic Momentum One-Day Cup, is also in the starting 11 and will bat at three, while Dale Steyn and Anrich Nortje are among a four-pronged pace-attack.

The Proteas have an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
