Auckland, New Zealand: South Africa won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat in their Cricket World Cup Pool B match at Auckland's Eden Park on Saturday.
The toss was held under overcast skies and there are forecasts of rain during the day-night game, which could prompt Pakistan to bat aggressively from the start in order to keep its run rate up.
South Africa's J.P. Duminy returns from injury, with Farhaan Behardien making way. For Pakistan, Younis Khan and Sarfraz Ahmed have come in at the expense of the injured Haris Sohail and Nasir Jamshed.
