Johannesburg: Opening batsman Janneman Malan was on Saturday added to South Africa's squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series in India on the back of his strong show against Australia.
Malan will be part of a 16-man squad which will depart for India from Johannesburg on Sunday.
"Proteas opening batsman, Janneman Malan has been included into the team's ODI tour to India. They will now travel with a 16-man squad for the three-match series taking place in Dharamshala, Lucknow and Kolkata," Cricket South Africa said.
