Opener Janneman Malan has been added to the Proteas squad that will tour India for three ODIs this month.

The 23-year-old was not included in the initial 15-man squad that will leave on Sunday, but his superb knock of 129* (139) in the 2nd ODI against Australia in Bloemfontein on Wednesday was enough to convince the selectors to include him for India. 

Malan had made a first-ball duck on debut in the first ODI against Australia in Paarl while, in the third and final ODI in Potchefstroom on Sunday, he made 23 (26). 

Proteas ODI squad for India:

Quinton de Kock (captain), Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, Kyle Verreynne, Heinrich Klaasen, Janneman Malan David Miller, Jon-Jon Smuts, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Lutho Sipamla, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje, George Linde, Keshav Maharaj.

1st ODI: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium - 12 March

2nd ODI: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium - 15 March
