The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the squads for the multi-format series against South Africa women's team at home. Jemimah Rodrigues and Pooja Vastrakar have been included in both white-ball and red-ball squads, but their participation depends upon their fitness levels.

Rodrigues' back injury prompted her to miss the five-game T20I tour of Bangladesh recently and was in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. While Vastrakar played all five games of the victorious series, the BCCI hasn't specified the nature of her injury.

Uncapped keeper-batter Uma Chetry replaces Yastika Bhatia, who sustained an injury only after the opening T20I against Bangladesh. Top-order batter Priya Punia and pacer Arundhati Reddy have also been recalled, but there was no place for Titas Sadhu. Harleen Deol and Mannat Kashyap are other notable absentees from the squad.

Team India ODI squad: Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Smriti Mandhana (vice-capt), Shafali Verma, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues (subject to fitness), Richa Ghosh (wk), Uma Chetry (wk), Dayalan Hemalatha, Radha Yadav, Asha Sobhana, Shreyanka Patil, Saika Ishaque, Pooja Vastrakar (subject to fitness), Renuka Singh Thakur, Arundhati Reddy, Priya Punia.
