South Africa’s batting mainstays Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen have been recalled to the ODI squad for the three-match series in India beginning March 12.
du Plessis last played an ODI for South Africa in the 2019 World Cup and was rested for the home series against England and Australia. During this period, he also quit the captaincy and handed the reigns to Quinton de Kock.
The right-handed batsman captained the Proteas in a total of 112 international matches across all three formats since December 2012 when he led South Africa for the very first time against New Zealand in a T20I series.
van der Dussen, on the other hand, featured in the ODI series against England and was rested for the ongoing series against Australia.
South Africa will be playing three ODIs on March 12, 15 and 18 in Dharamsala, Lucknow and Kolkata.
