Kimberley ODI: Muscle injury ruled Amla out
23 Jan 2013
PROTEAS star batsman Hashim Amla was ruled out of the second ODI against New Zealand at the De Beers Diamond Oval in Kimberley last night.
Amla sustained a strain to his right quad muscle during practice on Monday afternoon, which flared up overnight.
Proteas team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said: “Hashim sustained the strain in his right quad during warm-ups [on Monday] afternoon, but continued training without much hindrance. He woke up this morning with a severely stiff quad muscle and was withdrawn from the playing XI.”
