Durban, Mar 20 (UNI) Fast bowler Monde Zondeki has been called up to replace Charl Langeveldt for South Africa's tour of India starting later this month.

''Monde has shown outstanding form this season to establish himself as the leading bowler in the domestic game,'' selection convener Joubert Strydom told Cricket South Africa's (CSA) official website.

''His form for the South African A side has also been outstanding,'' he added.

''He has made a good recovery from the injury that sidelined him for part of the MTN Domestic Championship campaign and is back to full match fitness.'' The 25-year-old is the leading wicket-taker in South African first-class cricket this season with 62 wickets at an average of 19.16.

South Africa are scheduled to play Tests in Chennai (Mar 26-30), Ahmedabad (Apr 3-7) and Kanpur (Apr 11-15) during their tour of India.
