Nagpur:

Medium pacer Charl Langeveldt was on Sunday added to South Africa's one-day squad for the upcoming three-match series against India.

"We have decided to add Langeveldt as an additional player to the squad announced earlier," Cricket South Africa's president and national selection panel convener Gerald Majola said.

"We do not believe that we have all our bases covered at the moment in the bowling department," he explained.

"We have two major ICC tournaments coming up - first the ICC World Twenty20 in the West Indies and then next year's ICC World Cup on the sub-continent - and it is important that we explore all our options.

"Charl also brings much needed experience to our attack. He has played 64 matches while Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Wayne Parnell have played only 67 matches between them. Johan Botha is the only other specialist bowler in the squad with 50 ODI appearances," Majola added.

The ODI matches are to be held at Jaipur (Feb 21), Gwalior (Feb 24) and Ahmedabad (Feb 27) after the ongoing two-Test series.

Revised SA ODI squad: Graeme Smith (Captain), Loots Bosman, Johan Botha, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, J P Duminy, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Charl Langeveldt, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Alviro Petersen, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Roelof van der Merwe.
