The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Saturday named off-spin all-rounder Washington Sundar as replacement for pace all-rounder Deepak Chahar for the remainder of the ODI series against South Africa.

India will play the second ODI in Ranchi on October 9, 2022 and will play the final ODI of the series in New Delhi on October 11, 2022.
