Hambantota, Sri Lanka: South Africa captain A.B. de Villiers won the toss Saturday and decided to bat first against Sri Lanka in the third and final one-day international.

   


The series is level 1-1 and though the pitch here generally helps pace bowlers, Sri Lanka has opted for a slower track this time.
   
Both teams made one change each to the side that played in the first two games.
   
Sri Lanka brought in left-arm spinner Rangana Herath for seam bowler Nuwan Kulasekara while South Africa played left-arm pace bowler Wayne Parnell instead of Vernon Philander.
   
South Africa is playing its first ODI at Hambantota but has played four T20 internationals here, winning three.

Teams:
   
Sri Lanka: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Lahiru Thirimanne, Ashan Priyanjan, Angelo Mathews (captain), Rangana Herath, Sachithra Senanayake, Ajantha Mendis, Lasith Malinga.
   
South Africa: Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers (captain), JP Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Wayne Parnell, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir.
