Sidebottom to miss ODI against South Africa

Sidebottom to miss ODI against South Africa

England bowler Ryan Sidebottom has been ruled out of Friday's one-day international against South Africa because of a hip and groin injury.
The 30-year-old Sidebottom had a fitness test Thursday and was unable to bowl, after already missing Monday's ODI against Scotland with the same problem. Yorkshire allrounder Tim Bresnan was added to the squad as replacement.
England captain Kevin Pietersen is also without his predecessor Paul Collingwood, who is serving the second game of a five-match suspension for slow over rates.
South Africa's Albie Morkel has been ruled out with a shoulder injury, while his brother Morne is struggling to overcome a sidestrain.
