CRICKET DESK: South Africa have fought their way back into the series and now trail 2-1 with two matches got go after the Proteas won the third ODI by seven wickets on the back of two sparkling centuries from Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock. However, SA will need to be at their best again today as England still have the chance to clinch the series with one match left.
SOLD OUT: Word from the ground is that today's match is a sell-out. There is sure to be a wonderful atmosphere today.
PINK DAY: Today is, of course, Pink Day at the Wanderers with the Proteas wearing pink in aid of breast cancer awareness. SA have never lost while wearing pink and will want that trend to continue.
TOSS: South Africa have won the toss and elected to field first.
TEAM NEWS: SA have made one change with Chris Morris in for Morne Morkel. England have made two changes with Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes in for Chris Jordan and David Willey.

SA TEAM: Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers (capt), JP Duminy, Farhaan Behardien, David Wiese, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Kyle Abbott, Imran Tahir.

PITCH REPORT: There is just a touch of moisture in the pitch and it is well-grassed. There might be a bit of seam movement early on but it looks like a pretty good batting wicket. There is also a short boundary on one side so we could see some big scores today.
FIRST OVER: Jason Roy will face the first ball of the match with Kyle Abbott, sporting pink boots, to bowl. Abbott's first delivery is a wide off side delivery and England have their first run. There is a bit of swing for Abbott early on. Roy lofts the last ball over mid-on for four!
SHOT: Rabada offers up some width and Hales strokes the ball through the covers for four. This does look a very good pitch for batting. England 10-0 after two overs.
@Awesome: I'll be honest and say that I have no idea.
GOOD OVER: That is a very good over from Abbott as he concedes just a single while also beating Roy's bat on two occasions. England 11-0 after three overs.
@Awesome: I think so. SA seem to be better at chasing and they will know how many runs they will need by batting second.
BOUNDARY: There is still some swing on offer and the batsmen have battled to score but Hales skews an Abbott delivery over the covers for four. England 18-0 after five overs.
WICKET: SA have their first wicket as Rabada fires in a short ball that Roy top edges down to fine leg with Abbott taking a good catch, sliding on his knees. England 18-1 in the sixth over. Rabada bowls a wicket maiden.
@Straightdeal: I'm not so sure. The SA team looks more balanced since they added an all-rounder. This looks a good batting wicket. It will come down to which team holds their nerve with the bat I reckon.
WHIPPY: Hales whips an Abbott delivery through midwicket for four. Abbott then serves up a short ball that Hales murders over midwicket for four more. England 28-1 after seven overs.
IMPRESSIVE: Rabada's good work continues as he allows just one run from his over and his figures are now 4-1-8-1. England 29-1 after eight overs.
@Awesome: Parnell is coming back from injury. He was out for a long time. He has been included in the SA A team that will play a T20 match against England.
