South Africa have already pocketed the five match series against West Indies as the teams move base to Port Elizabeth for the penultimate One-Day International (ODI). West Indies have been bitterly disappointing failing to carry the momentum gained in the Twenty20 Internationals into the ODI series. South Africa have been a completely different kettle of fish in the 50-over format. Live Cricket Scorecard: South Africa vs West Indies 4th ODI at Port Elizabeth

The return of AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla and the core bowling group proved far too formidable for the meek visitors. But South Africa are likely to rest some of these players yet again with the series already sealed. Hashim Amla is sure to miss the match.

West Indies seem to have dozed off since the commencement of the ODIs. Although South Africa were always going to be hard to beat, the abject manner of defeats is worrying from a West Indian point of view. The new captain Jason Holder had lambasted the attitude of his players, yet some things don’t change. The tourists are terribly low on confidence but if South Africa rest some of the big names which may provide a level playing field.


South Africa: AB de Villiers (c), Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, Jean-Paul Duminy, David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Kyle Abbott, Rilee Rossouw, Morne van Wyk (wk), Dale Steyn, Wayne Parnell, Vernon Philander, Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso, Morne Morkel.

West Indies: Jason Holder(c), Marlon Samuels, Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Darren Sammy, Carlos Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Sheldon Cottrell, Narsingh Deonarine, Leon Johnson, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Sulieman Benn, Jerome Taylor.
