Seamer Marco Jansen has received a maiden ODI call-up for South Africa's three-match series against India this month.

Jansen made his Test debut in the defeat against India at SuperSport Park, taking 4-55 in the second innings.

The 21-year-old left-armer was on Sunday included in a 17-man squad for an ODI series that gets under way at Boland Park on January 19.

Paceman Anrich Nortje is not ready to return from a hip injury, but all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius is back in the squad.

Wayne Parnell and Zubayr Hamza keep their places after being picked for an ODI series against the Netherlands that was postponed due to concerns over coronavirus.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock is also selected following his shock retirement from Test cricket following the loss to India in Centurion.

Cricket South Africa convenor of selectors Victor Mpitsang said: "This is a very exciting group and the selection panel and I are eager to see what they will produce.

"For many of our players, it does not get bigger than playing against this powerhouse Indian team and this will be the biggest series of their young lives so far.

"We are looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table and wish Temba [captain Bavuma] and Mark [head coach Boucher] all the best for the series."


South Africa ODI squad to face India:

Temba Bavuma (captain), Keshav Maharaj, Quinton de Kock, Zubayr Hamza, Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Sisanda Magala, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen, Kyle Verreynne.
