  • Print

BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe - Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura won the toss and sent South Africa in to bat Sunday in the first of three one-day internationals at Queens Sports Club.

Allrounder Chigumbura begins his second stint as captain of the limited-overs team.

South Africa made six changes to its lineup after victory in the one-off test between the African neighbours in Harare. Batsman David Miller, allrounder Ryan McLaren, fast bowlers Wayne Parnell and Kyle Abbott and spinners Aaron Phangiso and Imran Tahir were all brought in. South Africa is under ODI captain AB de Villiers having been led by Hashim Amla in the test.

The Proteas rested their front-line fast bowling trio of Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel.

Zimbabwe made five changes from the test side, with Chigumbura selected alongside seamer Shingi Masakadza and offspin bowler Prosper Utseya. Luke Jongwe and Neville Madziva make their international debuts.

Both sides selected two specialist spinners on what is expected to be a dry pitch in Bulawayo. All three games in the series will be at Queens.
