South Africa win the toss and choose to bat first in the second one-day international against England.

South Africa have won the toss and chosen to bat first in the second one-day international against England today.

The first ODI between the sides was abandoned due to the weather after just 33 balls being bowled.

England, therefore, still sit atop the world rankings in the 50-over form of the game, but could be dethroned if the tourists record a victory.

Such a result would complete a fine summer for South Africa, who have already replaced England as the number one Test side in the world.
