Amla injury blow for Proteas



Proteas batsman Hashim Amla suffered a groin strain during the team's 17-run defeat to Sri Lanka in the second one-day international at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday.

Amla fell awkwardly while fielding on the boundary in the rain-affected match and was immediately taken to hospital for a scan.

The MRI scan, Proteas team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said, confirmed Amla sustained a Grade-1 strain to the left groin muscle.

"Hashim jarred his left knee into the ground while fielding, after which he reported discomfort in the pelvic and groin region," Moosajee said.

Moosajee said Amla would receive intensive treatment to get him match-fit for the team's third match in Pallekele on Friday.

"Injuries of this nature usually take three to seven days to recover, but he will receive intensive treatment and rehab in the coming days to give him the best possible chance of being ready for the third or fourth ODI in Kandy this week," he said.
