South African skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat first in the fifth and final One-Day International against Pakistan on Monday.

South Africa have already won the series and the final game will be a dead rubber. Having scored a ton in the previous match, wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton De Kock is confident that South Africa will complete a 4-1 series win.

“We definitely look to get it 4-1 and that is our main goal and if we do that it would be awesome,” he said.


South Africa: Hashim Amla, Qinton de Kock (wk), JP Duminy, AB de Villiers (c), Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Vernon Philander, Wayne Parnell, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Robin Peterson.
