Johannesburg [South Africa], Oct.05 (ANI
): South Africa all-rounder Wayne Parnell
has been ruled out of the ongoing one-day international series against Australia due to a rib injury.
The 27-year-old sustained the injury during the second ODI in Johannesburg on Sunday and will require at least a month to make a full recovery, Sport24 reported.
Reflecting on Parnell's injury, South Africa team manager 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." South Africa
are leading the five-match series 2-0 and will clinch their first bilateral series win against Australia
since 2008-09 if they win the third ODI
at Kingsmead in Durban. (ANI
