Cape Town - Proteas captain Faf du Plessis will not play in the upcoming three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. 

That news was confirmed by Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday.

"The CSA medical committee has withdrawn Faf from the ODI series. He has not made a satisfactory recovery from his shoulder injury and has been given more time to make a complete recovery," team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said.

"We are hopeful he will be fit enough to return to lead the T20 side for the three-match series against Zimbabwe." 

JP Duminy will lead the side in Du Plessis' absence.
