Off Spinner Johan Botha has been ruled out of this month’s unofficial T20 Tri Series in Zimbabwe because of a knee injury sustained during the IPL. Johan Botha was named as the Captain of the South African side. He has been replaced in that position by Hashim Amla who will lead the Proteas in the unofficial series considered to be played for warm-up ahead of the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka. No player has been named additionally in the place of Botha, thus cutting down the SA squad to 14. The tri-series featuring Zimbabwe, South Africa and Bangladesh begins on the 17th of this month.
