Cape Town - Proteas Test skipper Graeme Smith is set to undergo surgery on his troublesome left ankle.

Smith was last week withdrawn from the Proteas' one-day squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy in England.

He had been playing county cricket for English side, Surrey, when scans revealed a stress fracture to his ankle.

Smith confirmed on Twitter that he will go under the knife on Thursday afternoon, tweeting: "So after week of docs and hospitals I'm in for surgery this afternoon......"

Smith, whose spot in the Proteas squad was taken by Alviro Petersen, has been advised to follow a rest and rehabilitation programme over the next four to six months.
