Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma walk out to open. Here comes Morne Morkel with the first new ball

Both sides going into the first match of the tournament without one specialist opener each

AB de Villiers wins the toss and South Africa will bowlfirst

AB de Villiers: "It is a bit overcast. There might be movement around. We have gone with four seamers. The other surprise is we are starting with Colin Ingram, he is opening the batting. We don't want to risk Dale Steyn." Even without Steyn, this is quite a pace attack - Morkel, Tsotsobe, McLaren, Kleinveldt

MS Dhoni: "We were looking to bowl as well. I don't think the wicket will change much. Vijay misses out. We can manage this much cold. Birmingham was really cold." Rohit Sharma will open, with Dinesh Karthik in the middle order. Two spinners, and no Irfan

Pitch report: Hard pitch, grass cover, expect bounce and some seam movement, says Simon Doull on air
