SA captain out of one dayers in India

8:24 am on 19 February 2010

South Africa's cricket captain Graeme Smith has been ruled out of their three-match one-day series in India after failing to fully recover from a broken finger.

Smith played in the second test won last night by India but he's now returning home.

Jacques Kallis will lead the team, and the player of the test series against India, Hashim Amla is staying on, although he wasn't part of the original one day side.

India have also suffered an injury setback - their strike bowler Zaheer Khan will sit out the one day series with a muscle injury.
