CAPE TOWN - Wayne Parnell has been ruled out of the remainder of the Momentum ODI Series against Bangladesh through injury.

His place in the Proteas squad for the remainder of the series will be taken by Highveld Lions all-rounder Wiaan Mulder.

Cricket South Africa also named Dolphins all-rounder Robbie Frylinck on Tuesday as a new cap for the T20 series against Bangladesh.

“The selection of Robbie provides another opportunity to explore our depth in the important all-rounder position,” said selection convenor Linda Zondi.

“Apart from his bowling strengths, he has a proven record as a finisher with the bat.”

Zondi also explained the rationale behind the decision to rest Imran Tahir.

“Imran remains our first-choice spinner in both the limited-overs formats, but we also need to develop depth in this important area, which is why we have given further opportunities to (Tabraiz) Shamsi and (Aaron) Phangiso.”

Faf du Plessis resumes the captaincy after missing the series in England, while the selectors have also decided to rest Kagiso Rabada, who has been playing non-stop cricket for the Proteas for an extended period of time.

Parnell could not be considered for the T20 series because of injury.

The T20 internationals will take place on October 26 (Bloemfontein, 6pm) and October 29 (Potchefstroom, 2.30pm).

Proteas ODI squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Wiaan Mulder, Dane Paterson, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada.

Proteas T20 Squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Robbie Frylinck, Beuran Hendricks, David Miller, Mangaliso Mosehle, Dane Paterson, Aaron Phangiso, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi.
