Steyn is nursing a mild, left-side strain, and Kallis is recovering from a sprained joint to a small finger, sustained in the first ODI in Cape Town.
“Dale and Jacques will play a key role in the upcoming series against India in both the Tests and ODIs,” said Proteas’ team manager Mohammed Moosajee.
“So we felt it was necessary for us to take precautionary measures so that they are able to enter the series in prime condition. This will also give the coaching staff an opportunity to try out a few players who have missed out during the series.”
No additional players have been added to the squad.
