Parnell had bowled three balls in the 40th over, and when attempting to bowl the fourth, pulled up in his run up.

After consultation with captain Graeme Smith, Parnell went off the field.

Parnell went to hospital where scans revealed it was a groin strain, which required five to seven days recovery.

It meant Parnell would be in doubt for the third Test, starting in Cape Town on March 1.

Parnell would be able to bat in the second innings, but would not be able to bowl again in the second Test.
