Harare - Proteas all-rounder, Ryan McLaren, will take no further part in the Triangular series after suffering a hairline fracture to a bone in his right forearm during Tuesday's match against Australia.

McLaren was hit while batting during the Proteas' chase, but continued to bat through the pain until his dismissal.

"Ryan was taken for X-rays this afternoon after complaining of severe pain following a blow to his right forearm yesterday.

"The scans revealed a hairline fracture to the bone in the right forearm, which rules him out of action for the next three weeks.

"He will return back to South Africa on Thursday morning," said Proteas team manager, Mohammed Moosajee.

The Proteas play Zimbabwe on Thursday morning, needing only to avoid heavy defeat to book a place in Saturday's final against Australia.
