Centurion: India won the toss and decided to bat in its triangular Limited Overs series day-night match against South Africa at Centurion Park on Wednesday.

South Africa brought back left-handed spin bowling all-rounder Nicky Boje for his first international match since he returned early from a tour of the West Indies in April to have an operation on his left shoulder. He replaced Justin Kemp from the side that beat India in Johannesburg on Friday. India recalled off spinner Harbhajan Singh in place of fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad. South Africa tops the table after beating India by six wickets and Kenya by seven wickets in the first two matches of the tournament. India and Kenya have yet to win. Teams: South Africa: Shaun Pollock (captain), Gary Kirsten, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Jonty Rhodes, Neil McKenzie, Lance Klusener, Mark Boucher, Nicky Boje, Andre Nel and Makhaya Ntini. India: Saurav Ganguly (captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Shiv Sunder Das, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Deep Dasgupta, Anil Kumble, Ajit Agarkar, Harbhajan Singh and Javagal Srinath. Umpires: Ian Howell, Brian Jerling (both RSA). TV umpire: Shahid Wadvalla (RSA). Match referee: Ahmed Ebrahim (Zim).
