India vs South Africa 3rd ODI: Probable XI

India complete crushing ODI win over S Africa

The wicketkeeper joins injured Proteas stalwarts Faf du Plessis, Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers, though de Villiers is expected to resume training in the next few days.

The selectors will not name a replacement for De Kock in the squad, which means Heinrich Klaasen, the only other specialist wicketkeeper in the squad, is nearly certain to make his ODI debut in Cape Town on Wednesday.

"Quinton suffered an extreme blow to the left wrist while batting in the second ODI on Sunday and felt severe pain and discomfort", team manager Mohammed Moosajee said.

India will fancy its chances to take an unprecedented 3-0 lead when it will take on a depleted South African team, plagued by injuries, in the third One-day global of the six-match series at Newlands here on Wednesday. The third ODI at Capetown will boost the team record as well as their first series victory in South Africa.

Klaasen's late inclusion will mean that he is yet to be scarred by Indian wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, who have shared 13 wickets in the first two matches.

Seven months after a stupendous show in the World Cup, the Indian women's team shook off rustiness easily with a crushing 88-run win in the series-opener here on Tuesday.

However, they struggled to build partnerships as regular wickets undermined their run-chase.

But no one in India was able to see team perform.

South Africa will hope, though, that De Kock's enforced break proves to be a blessing in disguise.

From the on-set of the RamSlam T20 Challenge, De Kock has failed to find the middle of his bat.

Zondo scored only 25 runs off 45 balls, and played far too many risky strokes, but in an innings that folded for 118 runs in 32.2 overs, he was the joint top-scorer with JP Duminy. De Kock will require two to four weeks to recover, which could put his participation in the Test series against Australia, which begins on March 1, in doubt. All three were key to South Africa' fire-power at top of the order, with them gone it will be interesting, who takes over the role of aggressor. Television replays showed the ball to be turning past his leg-stump.
