"Imran injured himself during the game against England (on Sunday) while attempting the caught and bowled, which dismissed Jonathan Trott," team manager Mohammed Moosajee said in a statement.

"The x-ray that was done today revealed a small undisplaced fracture in his left thumb. His thumb has been splintered and immobilised and a decision on what happens further will be made in the next two days," he added.
