AWKWARD! Proteas bowler FAILS fitness test, out of Bangladesh ODI series

Proteas fast bowler Sisanda Magala has failed a fitness test and has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match ODI series against Bangladesh.

Magala’s absence is the only change to the Proteas’ ODI squad which beat India 3-0 in January.

In that series Magala struggled, taking just two wickets in the two matches (second and third ODI) he played.

He went for close to 7.4 runs per over.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed Magala had failed a fitness test on Tuesday, without specifying what test he had failed to meet requirements.

Magala has struggled with his fitness in the past.

Proteas squad:

Temba Bavuma (captain), Keshav Maharaj, Quinton de Kock (wkt), Zubayr Hamza, Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen, Kyle Verreynne (wkt)

Fixtures:

Friday, 18 March, Centurion – 13:00

Sunday, 20 March, Johannesburg – 10:00

Wednesday, 23 March, Centurion – 13:00
