India all-rounder Washington Sundar was ruled out of the upcoming ODI series against South Africa after testing positive for Covid-19 during a training camp in Bengaluru.

Sundar was supposed to travel to Cape Town with the ODI members on Wednesday and join the rest of the squad ahead of the ODI series starting January 19.

The Committee also added fast bowler Navdeep Saini to the ODI squad as a back-up for Mohammed Siraj who is still recovering from his hamstring injury that he sustained during the second Test against South Africa in Johannesburg.
