CAPE TOWN - Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis have been released from the Castle Lager Proteas' ODI squad for the third Momentum ODI taking place at SuperSport Park on Saturday.
Paceman Steyn has a mild side strain while all-rounder Kallis has a badly sprained little finger.
Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee said, "Dale and Jacques will play a key role in the upcoming series against India in both the Tests and ODI's, so we felt it was necessary for us to take precautionary measures so that they are able to enter the series in prime condition.
"This will also give the coaching staff an opportunity to try out a few players who have missed out during the series."
The Proteas starts a three-match 50-over series against India next Thursday followed by two tests.
Pakistan leads the ODI encounter 2-0, their first bilateral series win over South Africa home or away.
No additional players have been added to the squad.
