South African fast bowler Beuran Hendricks has suffered a back injury and has been ruled out of the upcoming One-Day Internationals in Zimbabwe.

The Proteas play three ODIs against Zimbabwe before an ODI tri-series which also includes Australia.

Left-armer Hendricks, who has played five Twenty20 Internationals, will have to wait a little longer to get an opportunity to make his ODI debut.

"Beuran Hendricks has been ruled out of the ODI leg of the Proteas' tour, after sustaining a lumbar strain during South Africa A's tour of Australia," a Cricket South Africa statement confirmed.

"Hendricks has been advised a period of rest and recovery, and no replacement will be added in his place.

"The Selectors will finalise the squad for the triangular series at the conclusion of the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe."

After helping their side win the one-off Test in Harare by nine wickets, fellow fast bowlers Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander and Dale Steyn are returning home to South Africa having been rested for the ODI series but will be back in Zimbabwe for the tri-series.

Mthokozisi Shezi, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Aaron Phangiso and Marchant de Lange are heading to Bulawayo, where the first ODI will be played on 17th August.

South Africa ODI squad: AB de Villiers (captain), Hashim Amla (vice-captain), Kyle Abbott, Quinton de Kock, Marchant de Lange, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Rilee Rossouw, Mthokozisi Shezi
