Pacer Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out of the One-Day International (ODI) series against England which is scheduled to begin on Friday after sustaining a right adductor strain.

The 25-year-old paceman who recently concluded the 13th season of the Indian Premier League as its leading wicket-taker, featured in South Africa's first and second T20Is against England, picking a solitary wicket.

Rabada, left out of the final T20I on Tuesday, has been immediately released from the squad and will be out of the bio-secure bubble soon.  With the injury expected to heal in three weeks, Rabada will begin rehabilitation and preparation on Wednesday ahead of South Africa's Test series against Sri Lanka, which begins on December 26.
