According to a press release sent by Cricket South Africa (CSA), Rabada has been released from the national team’s bio-secure bubble due to heavy workloads.

The paceman was in good form in the Test series against India, claiming 20 wickets as the Proteas came from behind to win the three-match series 2-1.

Rabada will now recuperate with the aim being that he is in top shape for the Test tour to New Zealand due to take place next month.

No replacement has been called up but spinning all-rounder George Linde has been retained in the ODI squad from the Test series.

The first two ODIs against India will take place at Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday and Friday with the final game of the series to be played at Newlands on Sunday.
