JP Duminy fit for second ODI

South African batsman JP Duminy is fit to play the second one-day international against Zimbabwe at Centurion on Tuesday, having recovered from a shin injury. Duminy and Jacques Kallis were ruled out of the opening game in Benoni on Sunday, but the team's physiotherapist Brandon Jackson has said that both were expected to take part in the second game.

"JP has had a mild dose of shin splints," Jackson told "We thought it would be advisable to rest him for a couple of days, and he is now clear to resume full activity."

Regarding Kallis, who experienced some discomfort in his side, Jackson was hopeful of him being able to contribute as an allrounder. "Jacques has been batting for a few days now without any problems," Jackson said. "He bowled five light overs during the lunch break today. He came through that symptom free and should be ready for full activity by the weekend."

However, Jackson confirmed that Wayne Parnell, the left-arm fast bowler, will not be available as he's yet to recover from his ankle strain. "He is probably still 10 days away from a return to full activity," Jackson said.

That means Parnell could miss the two Twenty20 internationals against England, on November 13 and 15, and make his comeback only in the ODI series, starting November 20.
