Injured Smith ruled out of T20 international

Last updated on: January 07, 2011 23:32 IST

South Africa Test captain Graeme Smith will miss Sunday's Twenty20 international against India because of a bruised hand, Cricket South Africa (CSA) said on Friday.

A CSA spokesman said opener Smith would be fit for the five-match One-day series starting on January 12.

Smith is the third cricketer to be injured after South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis and India opener Gautam Gambhir during the three-match Test series.

Kallis will miss the first two ODI because of a rib injury, which he suffered while batting in the first innings of the third Test.

Left hander Gambhir has been ruled out of the entire one-day series because of an elbow injury he sustained at Newlands.

India will take on South Africa in the only twenty20 International on Sunday in Durban.
