India in South Africa 2010-11 January 19, 2011

Albie, van Wyk drafted in for remaining ODIs

Albie Morkel, the South Africa allrounder, has replaced batsman David Miller in the squad for the fourth and fifth ODIs against India. Both players have not been included in South Africa's squad for the 2011 World Cup. Morne van Wyk, who is part of the 15-man squad for that tournament, has also been drafted in for the remaining ODIs.

"We've included Albie to assist with the balance of our squad in the absence of Jacques Kallis," Mohammad Moosajee, South Africa's team manager, told ESPNcricinfo. "We need someone to bat at No. 7, because we had Johan Botha coming in there, so we've now got Albie."

Miller managed just 36 runs in two innings while his contender for the middle-order spot Faf du Plessis struck a half-century on debut to secure a place in the World Cup squad.

India lead the series 2-1.
