Johannesburg:South African skipper Graeme Smith's good luck at the toss continued as Proteas won their fifth on in a row in the last One-dayer of the five-match series at Centurion. This time, however, he decided to put India in to bat.

With the series already clinched, South Africa made just one change from the team which played the Port Elizabeth match, bringing in Robin Peterson for Andrew Hall.

The injury to Ajit Agarkar meant he was forced to miss out, giving India the opportunity to play both Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.Wasim Jaffer and Moh Kaif were the two others to be excluded
