“Fast bowler Lutho Sipamla has been ruled out of the remainder of the one-day series against Sri Lanka due to a back injury. Kwena Maphaka has been called up to strengthen the squad,” read a statement from Cricket South Africa.

Maphaka is 17 years old – and was capped five times by South Africa Under-19 in October 2022.

Sri Lanka A and South Africa A are contesting the limited-over series decider in Pallekele on Thursday. South Africa A won the first match last week and Sri Lanka the second this week.

South Africa A and Sri Lanka A will also contest two four-day fixtures in Hambantota this month.
