AB de Villiers has lamented the Proteas’ inconsistency in all three disciplines in their 32-run loss to Australia in the first ODI at the WACA Ground.

Cape Town - Australian captain Michael Clarke has been ruled out of the remaining matches in the One Day International series with South Africa following an ongoing left hamstring problem.

Clarke suffered a recurrence of the hamstring injury in the first ODI against South Africa in Perth on Friday. George Bailey wore the captains armband for the remainder of the match and will captain the team for the rest of the series.

Cricket Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said: “Michael had scans today in Perth for his ongoing left hamstring problem. He will return to Sydney for further treatment and an update on his fitness for the first Test in Brisbane will be made in due course.”

Australia lead the five match ODI series 1-0, the second match takes place in Perth on Sunday.
