Durban - Proteas all-rounder Wayne Parnell has been ruled out of the Momentum One-Day International (ODI) series against Australia due to a rib injury.

Parnell sustained the injury during the second ODI in Johannesburg on Sunday and will need between three to four weeks to make a full recovery.

Commenting on Parnell’s injury, Proteas team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said: “Wayne had a high-impact landing while fielding during the second ODI on Sunday with subsequent scans confirming a rib injury. He will require two to three weeks of rest before he can resume bowling which makes him unavailable for the remainder of this series.”
