Calf injury sidelines Oram from ODI series against Proteas

Wellington: Kiwi all rounder Jacob Oram will not feature in the final Twenty20 and the subsequent one-day series against South Africa after going out with a calf injury.

New Zealand Cricket physiotherapist Paul Close revealed that the injury is minor but added that the jam-packed nature of the current series wouldn``t allow Oram to participate.

"Although it`s a relatively minor calf injury, the congested nature of the series means Jake won`t be available for the ODIs," quoted Close, as saying.

New Zealand will play the final match of the Twenty20 series at Eden Park in Auckland tonight before starting a three-match ODI series against the Proteas in Wellington on Saturday.
