Cape Town - Proteas Test captain Graeme Smith will travel back to South Africa on Monday night for the birth of his first child.

Smith will miss the two-day warm-up match against Worcestershire, but will return in time for the Proteas' preparations for the second Test match which starts on July 30 in Leeds.

Smith scored a century in his 100th Test match against England over the weekend before the Proteas on Monday completed an innings and 12-run victory.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Albie Morkel has been released to play for Somerset County Cricket Club, who will be playing in the quarter-finals of the T20 Competition on Tuesday. Morkel will travel to Taunton on Monday and join up with the Proteas squad in Worcester on Thursday ahead of the two-day warm-up match.

The Proteas squad will travel to Worcester on Wednesday, the venue for their two-day warm-up match against Worcestershire starting on Friday.

They will then travel to Leeds on Sunday to start preparations for the second Test match at Headingley.
