Leeds - Proteas batsman Alviro Petersen sustained a hamstring strain while batting on day two of the second Test against England at Headingley.

He was sent for a MRI scan on Friday afternoon, which confirmed the Grade 1 strain.

Proteas team manager, Mohammed Moosajee said: “The radiologist’s report from the MRI scan revealed that Alviro suffered a Grade 1 strain to his right hamstring muscle. This type of injury usually requires a recovery time of approximately 7-10 days, however if he is needed to bat in the Proteas’ second innings he will do so.”

Faf du Plessis will be the fielding replacement for the remainder of the Test match.

Petersen top-scored in the Proteas' first innings with 182.
