Tsotsobe rested with back spasm

2010-11-05 12:45

Proteas left-arm bowler, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, has been rested due to a back spasm ahead of the fourth one-day international (ODI) against Pakistan today.

Convenor of selectors Andrew Hudson said Tsotsobe developed stiffness and immobility in his lower back after playing five matches in eight days.

“Lonwabo has had an outstanding tour of the United Arab Emirates, both during the Pro20s and ODIs and it is never great to rest a player who is performing well.

“He is an important part of our plans for the future, but this will also give us the chance to have a look at Wayne Parnell who comes with the similar left-arm variation that has troubled the Pakistan batsmen during the tour.

“Wayne has come back nicely after his long injury lay-off and is raring to go,” said Hudson.

South Africa lead the five match ODI series 2-1 with two games remaining.
