South Africa won the toss and elected to bat in the first ODI against India at Boland Park in Paarl.

South Africa will be without fast bowler Kagiso Rabada, who has been withdrawn from the squad. Rabada's workload has been adjusted in preparation for the team's tour to New Zealand next month.

Quinton de Kock is in the SA team after he announced his retirement from Test cricket during the Test series against India, which was won 2-1 by SA.

Umpire Marais Erasmus, who is back at the ground where he used to play his provincial cricket, is standing in his 100th ODI.
