South Africa likely to be unchanged

South Africa would hope they continue their dominance in this series.

Having said that, the Proteas' middle-order hasn't really been tested in this series. The bowling has done enough job and saved the batsmen from criticism so far. Captain Faf du Plessis may not change anything in the side but the general idea would be to give the middle-order some runs under their belt as they prepare for the World Cup which starts in May. The hosts would be confident about their bowling and batting together once as they look to seal the series.

Sri Lanka eye another twist in fortunes

Sri Lanka's bowling has made some marks in South Africa so far on this tour.

Their batting, especially in the two ODIs, has been dismal, to say the least. According to the Cricbuzz report, captain Lasith Malinga had made a point and called out for the improvement in batting. The visitors could call in Upul Tharanga at the top of the order at the expense of Aviskha Fernando. They are unlikely to make any changes to the bowling line-up though.

Durban has improved as far as the batting is concerned on the pitch.

The ball swings a little early on and the batsmen could face some difficulty with the new ball. There are thunderstorms expected throughout the day, and under the heavy overcast conditions, one must anticipate the ball to swing a bit more. Pacers from both the teams should enjoy their time during the Durban ODI.
