Finn ruled out of remainder of South Africa series

Steven Finn has disappointingly been ruled out of the remainder of the tour of South Africa through injury and will play no part in England's forthcoming ODI and T20 series against South Africa.

Finn felt discomfort on day two of the third Test and scans have revealed a left side strain.

Finn, who had been selected in both the ODI and T20 squads, will stay in South Africa for a week to begin his rehabilitation before returning to the UK at the end of the Test series.

He is, however, expected to be available for selection for the ICC World T20.

Yorkshire pace bowler Liam Plunkett will replace Finn in both squads. Plunkett is currently in the UAE with the England Lions and will travel to South Africa at the weekend, after the first two 50-over games against Pakistan A.
