Proteas prepare for final onslaught
The Proteas hope to come out tops in the fifth and final ODI against England.
JOHANNESBURG - The Proteas will face England in the fifth and final one-day international at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.
England is currently leading the series 2-1 following their victory over the South African side on Sunday.
The Proteas are no longer at the top of the ODI rankings.
Captain AB de Villiers says the opening batsmen have let the team down.
"We managed one partnership in every game and that's not good enough in this level. You need two or three good partnerships. There's definitely no excuse. The guys are batting in the places where they feel more comfortable in. We are just not playing well at the moment."
Meanwhile, England will be without Jonathan Trott after he injured his hand.
The game kicks off at 3pm local time.
