Discussions between the on-field and television officials will be aired in a bid to make their decisions more transparent and easier to understand for the audience.
“This initiative is part of ICC’s efforts to make umpiring more understandable to viewers and spectators,” the governing body was quoted by BBC Sport.
“The umpire communications can be aired during umpire referrals, consultations and DRS (Decision Review System) player reviews.”
England’s Nigel Llong and New Zealand’s Billy Bowden will be the first two on-field umpires to be part of the initiative, with the pair taking charge for the entire ODI series.
The position of the television umpire (or third umpire) will be rotated between a number of Australian officials throughout the series.
If the trial is successful then the ICC will consider using it again for select matches at the 2015 World Cup, which is being hosted in Australia and New Zealand as of February next year.
The series between the Aussies and the South Africans begins in Perth on Friday.
