Cape Town - Proteas seamer, Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been ruled out of the current KFC International T20 Series against New Zealand with an impingement syndrome of his right ankle.

Proteas Team Manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee said: “ Lonwabo complained of pain to his ankle yesterday during practice after bowling 10 balls. He was sent for an MRI scan which revealed bony bruising of the talus bone at the back of his ankle joint.

“The medical committee feel it will be best if he doesn’t take part in the current T20 series, recommending a two to three week rest period along with consultation with an ankle specialist.” 

The selectors will decide in due course if a replacement will be named.
