South African captain Graeme Smith has been ruled out of the upcoming Sri Lanka tour after tearing ligaments in his ankle.

Smith stuffered the injury while running over the weekend and it is not yet known how long he is likely to be on the sidelines for.

The first Test starts on 27th July at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground. Following the first Test, the South African one-day squad will be announced.
