Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) Medical Committee has advised the majority of the Proteas players who took part in the ODI series against Sri Lanka to be rested from the round of SuperSport Series matches starting on Thursday.

Proteas’ team manager, Mohammed Moosajee said: “The CSA medical committee has thoroughly examined each player that took part in the ODI series and has put through their specific recommendations for each player.”

“There are a few players with niggles and those will be attended to during the course of the next two weeks, while other players are being man-managed after a hectic playing schedule. They are also looking ahead to the busy season, where the workload of some key players will be carefully managed .”

While rest and recuperation has been advised, the players will still follow a vigorous training and conditioning programme ahead of the overseas tour to New Zealand.

“I have put together individual training programmes for each player in preparation for New Zealand,” said Proteas conditioning coach, Rob Walter. “The programmes will focus on cardio and strength training, and will also touch on cricket specific activities.”

The Cobras were, however, still boosted by some national players. Justin Ontong, Mark Boucher, Robin Peterson and Richard Levi are included in their squad for the clash against the Titans in Paarl..

All four were on Wednesday named in the Proteas squad to tour New Zealand next month.

This week's SuperSport Series matches are:

Dolphins v Warriors, Durban - 09:30
Lions v Knights, Johannesburg - 10:00
Cape Cobras v Titans, Paarl - 10:00
