Proteas batsman David Miller has been ruled out of the rest of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to an injury to his finger.
Miller, who struck an excellent 117 not out in the Proteas’ 121-run victory against the Sri Lankans in Durban on Wednesday, will not play any further part in the series, after sustaining a cut to his finger while fielding.
Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee, explained the injury: ‘David required sutures to a laceration sustained while fielding a ball during the match last night. He will need at least 7-10 days to recover and will miss the remaining three matches of the series. He remains available for selection for the upcoming tour of New Zealand.’
There will be no replacement added to the squad, as they look to close out the five-match contest at the Wanderers on Saturday.
