FAF Du Plessis Out Of Sri Lanka Tour

South Africa Captain FAF Du Plessis will miss the remaining two Odis and the Lone T20i against Sri Lanka after sustaining an injury to his right Shoulder.

Du Plessis fell awkwardly while attempting a catch in the 10th over of the Sri Lankan Innings during the third Odi on Sunday and immediately left the field for treatment.

He was not able to return and will need up to six weeks to make a full recovery.

South Africa will name a replacement Captain from within the squad, with no additional players to be added for the three Matches.

Markram was dropped from Sunday's Match after a patch of poor form but this could present an opportunity for him to re-establish himself in the one-day side. South Africa's other extra batsman is Heinrich Klaasen, who is also nursing a small niggle.
