Cape Town - Proteas captain Faf du Plessis will miss the remainder of the One-Day International (ODI) series and upcoming T20 International series against India due to a finger injury.
Du Plessis injured his right index finger during the first ODI at Kingsmead on Thursday, with further assessment and investigation revealing a fracture which will require 3-6 weeks to heal.
Du Plessis will undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation with the aim of being fit for the first Test match against Australia starting in Durban on March 1st.
The selectors have included Farhaan Behardien as Du Plessis' replacement, with Titans wicket-keeper batsman, Heinrich Klaasen, earning his maiden ODI call-up as a reserve wicket-keeper in the squad.
The captain for the remainder of the ODI series will be announced on Saturday.
The Proteas are trailing the six-match ODI series 1-0 with the second ODI in Centurion starting at 10:00 on Sunday.
