Hard-hitting allrounder Chloe Tryon is also out of action with a similiar injury also suffered during the same tournament.
Fast bowler Masabata Klaas was also ruled out of the squad after suffering an injury in training just before the squad was announced.
Off on their travels
The tour to India will serve as the Proteas first overseas trip since the initial wave of restrictions on sporting events hit last March.
“It is really exciting to finally have this tour confirmed and announce our squad that will do duty here in India,” said coach Hilton Moreeng.
“We are looking forward to getting out there to see our ladies prove themselves under different playing conditions.
“India is always a wonderful place to tour and we are looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.”
Sune Luus leads again
Luus led the Proteas to dual series wins over Pakistan, who visited in January and February to play three ODIs and three T20Is. The Proteas whitewashed Pakistan in the ODIs and clinched the T20I series in two matches before the tourists earned a consolation victory.
The Proteas Women still sport a good balance of experience and youth, with plenty of promise among the 17-member squad. Every member of the squad has international experience and most have played in Asia before.
All eight limited overs matches will be played in Lucknow, starting with the first of five ODIs on 7 March.
Luus will likely look to the core of experienced campaigners like Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, ICC Player of the month for January 2021 Shabnim Ismail and top-order stalwarts Lizelle Lee and Laura Wolvaardt.
