All-rounder Ryan McLaren has been ruled out of the remainder of South Africa's ODI tri-series against Zimbabwe and Australia at the Harare Sports Club.

McLaren sustained an arm injury during an innings of 24 in Tuesday's defeat to Australia, which the Proteas lost by 62 runs.

"Ryan was taken for x-rays after complaining of severe pain following a blow to his right forearm," said team manager, doctor Mohammed Moosajee.

"The scans revealed a hairline fracture to the bone in the right forearm, which rules him out of action for the next three weeks. He will return back to South Africa on Thursday."

McLaren will likely be replaced in the XI by fellow all-rounder Wayne Parnell. Alternatively, the Proteas will recall batsman Rilee Rossouw.
