Pretoria - Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis have been released from the Proteas' ODI squad for the third ODI against Pakistan taking place at SuperSport Park on Saturday.

In a statement released by CSA, Steyn is nursing a mild left side strain, and Kallis is recovering from a badly sprained joint to his right small finger sustained in the first ODI in Cape Town.

"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 pre-cautionary measures so that they are able to enter the series in prime condition," Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee said.

"This will also give the coaching staff an opportunity to try out a few players who have missed out during the series."

No additional players have been added to the squad.
