Cape Town - Proteas batsman Faf du Plessis has been ruled out of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand.

Du Plessis failed to recover from an injury to a tendon in his left knee and has been advised a rest period of three weeks to ensure a full recovery ahead of the tour to India at the end of September.

Farhaan Behardien replaced Du Plessis in the starting team for Wednesday’s first ODI in Centurion, with Dean Elgar called into the squad as back-up.

After Wednesday’s match, there are also games scheduled for Potchefstroom (August 23) and Durban (August 26).

The T20 series was shared 1-1.
