Johannesburg: India`s veteran medium-pacer Jhulan Goswami has been ruled out of the women's Twenty20 international (T20I) series against South Africa due to a heel injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Tuesday.

After an MRI scan on Monday, the BCCI medical team, in consultation with a local doctor, felt that she needs rest for a couple of weeks to avoid any further impact on the bone, according to a release.

Upon her return, the 35-year-old from Bengal will consult a foot expert and will undergo her rehab process at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

The injury comes after Jhulan became the first woman to take 200 wickets in one-day internationals (ODIs). In 60 T20Is, she has taken 66 wickets.

The first of the five T20Is will take place later on Tuesday at Potchefstroom.
