George Linde, a member of South Africa’s Test squad, was asked to remain with the ODI team as an additional spin-bowling option in the absence of Rabada.
Tuesday, South Africa announced that Kagiso Rabada would not be participating in the three-match ODI series against India. “Workload management” and ensuring that Rabada heals in time for the New Zealand tour were the reasons for Cricket South Africa’s decision to release him. South Africa announced that Kagiso Rabada had been omitted from the squad for the Betway ODI series against India because of a prolonged period of high workloads and the necessity for him to recuperate before the upcoming Test series against New Zealand.
There was no substitute for Rabada, but the hosts asked George Linde, who had been part of the Test team, to continue on for the ODI as an additional spin-bowling option.
Because of the BSE’s larger roster, no replacement will be found, although George Linde, a member of the Test team, has been retained as an extra spin-bowling option for the series, according to the CSA.
As part of the three-match Test series against India, Rabada took the most wickets. Rabada took 20 wickets at a strike rate of 19.05 in his debut season.
