The Proteas medical team has provided injury updates on Keshav Maharaj, Sisanda Magala and Wayne Parnell.
Maharaj has been cleared for selection for the remainder of the T20I series against Australia and the ODI series that follows.
The 33-year-old spinner has progressed positively through his rehabilitation of his ruptured left Achilles and successfully participated in the KZN Dolphins’ pre-season 50-over match against the KZN Inland Tuskers in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.
Magala has been ruled out of the second T20I due to a left knee injury. The 32-year-old fast bowler felt discomfort during training and subsequent scans revealed an infrapatellar tendinopathy. The medical team will continue to manage him ahead of the third T20I on Sunday.
All-rounder Parnell has developed a recurrence of a left shoulder injury. A further update on the extent of the injury will be provided following a scan.
