South Africa are without AB de Villiers for the first three One-Day Internationals against India due to a finger injury.

AB de Villiers sustained the injury to his right index finger during the third Test match against India. Indian ace spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were not picked in the 17-member Indian ODI squad. A testimony to the competition between them in Test cricket was the recently concluded three-match series which was keenly fought. After the intense three-Test series, the second leg of the tour, expected to be equally gruelling if not more, began on Tuesday morning with Virat Kohli & Co getting down to a full practice session here at the Kingsmead. India need to win this series should they topple South Africa from the top spot in the ODI rankings. "It's going to be a highly competitive series both in the ODI's and T20's", he said. And yes, it tends to take a lot out of your body more than anything else.

"That's been the integral change in the way guys are playing one-day cricket". Even if the first 10 overs go bad, you can always come back. "They are going to be high-scoring games across the country, which will bring the teams together". However, with Indian teams touring overseas, usually the whole tour is bunched together.

"It's different with six ODIs‚" Duminy said. It's a 50-over game, so you get time.

"The key for us is to start well". Last but not the least, Duminy said he was looking forward to reuniting with Mumbai Indians at the 2018 IPL. "There is a fine line and we will try and ensure that whatever team we pick has an equal chance of winning but we have a goal and a vision leading up to the World Cup and we want to expose as many players as possible".

For coach Ottis Gibson, De Villiers' absence provides the opportunity to introduce another player to one-day worldwide cricket before the World Cup.
