Botha injured

Johan Botha has been ruled out of the unofficial Twenty20 tri-series between South Africa, Zimbabwe and Bangladeshwith a knee injury. Botha was due to captain the side in AB de Villiers' absence but will not make the trip because of a blow he suffered to his left knee during the last week of theIPL, which ended in May. He is in the fourth week of a six-week recovery process.
"I got a ball to the knee and didn't think much of it but I was told to go for an MRI when I got home," Botha told ESPNcricinfo."The damage got all the way to the patella [knee cap] and although I can cycle and do most things, the South Africa management was concerned that if I got hit on the knee again or was injured during fielding, that would prolong the recovery [period]."
