Phehlukwayo should be back for Sri Lanka ODIs

Cape Town - Andile Phehlukwayo's nasty 'groin' injury that he picked up in Sunday's domestic T20 Challenge clash against the Warriors is unlikely to keep him out of the Proteas' ODI series against Sri Lanka in January. 

Phehlukwayo was hit in the groin area by a powerful JJ Smuts blow on the last ball of his second over and he did not bowl again in the match. 

News broke on Wednesday that the 20-year-old Proteas all-rounder would be ruled out for between 4-6 weeks, meaning bis participation in the T20 Challenge is over. 

He visited a urologist and required surgery and will spend the next month in rehabilitation. 

The good news, though, is that Phehlukwayo should be fit and ready to face Sri Lanka in a five-match ODI series starting on January 28. 

Phehlukwayo has made an extremely positive start to his international career and he played in all five matches in South Africa's 5-0 whitewash of Australia in October. 

His match-winning knock with David Miller in Durban stands out, while he has also proven an asset with the ball.
