LAHORE, Oct 9 (Reuters) South Africa have retained all-rounder Shaun Pollock for the five-match one-day series against Pakistan starting from Oct 18 in Lahore.

The South African selectors announced four changes to the tour squad with Justin Kemp, Albie Morkel, Johan Botha and Charl Langeveldt replacing Paul Harris, Dale Steyn, Ashwell Prince and Hashim Amla.

Kemp has been named vice-captain for the series.

Pollock, who has not played in either of the two tests on the tour, has been retained in the squad after young fast bowler Morne Morkel suffered a foot injury and had to fly back home for treatment.

The second match is in Lahore on Oct 20 followed by Faisalabad (October 23), Multan (26th) and Karachi (29th).

South African one-day squad: Graeme Smith (capt), Justin Kemp (vice-captain), Herschelle Gibbs, Shaun Pollock, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, Jean Paul Duminy, Mark Boucher, Vernon Philander, Albie Morkel, Johan Botha, Charl Langeveldt, Andre Nel and Makhaya Ntini.
