First ODI: South Africa win toss, elect to bat first against Pakistan
Pakistan will make all the efforts to bounce back from the setback of the 3-0 Test series defeat to gain the momentum ahead of the world cup.
Pakistan is said to be a more cohesive unit in the shorter format of the game and stand fifth on the ICC ODI Team Rankings.
In the absence of Dale Steyn, who has been rested for first two games, Olivier will expect to lead the attack from the front, who topped the charts with 24 wickets against Pakistan in the Test series.
Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (captain & wicketkeeper), Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Fahim Ashraf, Hasan Ali and Usman Shinwari
South Africa: Hashim Amla, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis (captain), David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Heinrich Klaasen (wicketkeeper), Kagiso Rabada, Dwaine Pretorius, Duanne Olivier, and Imran Tahir
