Jayant Yadav and Navdeep Saini have been added to India's squad for their three-match ODI series against South Africa.

Yadav has been called up as a replacement for off-spinner Washington Sundar, who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Sundar was supposed to travel to Cape Town on Wednesday to join up with the rest of the ODI squad, but he will now remain in India.

Fast bowler Saini has also been added as back-up for Mohammed Siraj, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury he sustained in the second Test against South Africa last week.

The series starts next Wednesday at Boland Park in Paarl.


India ODI squad to face South Africa:

KL Rahul (captain), Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur, Md. Siraj, Jayant Yadav, Navdeep Saini.
