South Africa off-spinner Johan Botha has been ruled out of the Twenty20 International tri-series in Zimbabwe with a knee injury.

He was due to captain the Proteas in Zimbabwe, where they will also take on Bangladesh, and his place in charge of the team has been handed to Hashim Amla.

No replacement in the squad has been named, however.

The series gets underway on 18th June when Zimbabwe play Bangladesh in Harare.

South Africa T20I squad: Hashim Amla (captain), Farhaan Behardien, Marchant de Lange, JP Duminy, Francois du Plessis, Colin Ingram, Richard Levi, Albie Morkel, Chris Morris, Justin Ontong, Wayne Parnell, Robin Peterson, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Dane Vilas
