JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and elected to bowl first against South Africa in the third one-day international on Sunday.

Pakistan — which leveled the five-match series at Centurion on Friday with a six-wicket win — left out fast bowler Umar Gul because of an injured knee and brought in seamer Wahab Riaz for his first game of the series.

Left-arm Riaz played his last ODI against India in the Asia Cup in March 2012.

South Africa also made one change from the team which lost the second match with fast bowler Rory Kleinveldt replacing Kyle Abott.

Kleinveldt took four wickets in South Africa's comprehensive 125-run win in the first match last Sunday.

South Africa is wearing a unique pink uniform in support of breast cancer awareness.
