Paceman Steyn has a mild side strain while all-rounder Kallis has a badly sprained little finger.

The pair has been rested in favour of the three-match 50-over series against India which starts next Thursday followed by two tests.

โ€œDale and Jacques will play a key role in the series against India so we felt it was necessary to take precautionary measures so that they are in prime condition,โ€ team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said on Thursday.

Pakistan lead the three match ODI series 2-0, their first bilateral series win over South Africa home or away. The greenshirts had beaten the Proteas by 23 runs in the first match in Cape Town and narrowly secured a second win in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday.

Kallis had made a return to the ODI team in the series against Pakistan, having not played ODIโ€™s since February, 2012.
