Cape Town - Proteas batsman Faf du Plessis is unlikely to recover in time for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand.

A knee injury ruled Du Plessis out of the recent T20 series against the Kiwis and according to ESPNcricinfo, he could miss the entire one-day series as well.

Coach Russell Domingo said Farhaan Behardien will play if Du Plessis is not declared fit.

According to the coach, they are also considering bringing in an extra batsman into the squad, but that player would only be a back-up in case there are more injuries.

The ODI series starts in Centurion on Wednesday, with matches also scheduled for Potchefstroom (August 23) and Durban (August 26).

The T20 series was shared 1-1.
