Adelaide: Australian fast bowler James Pattinson was ruled out of four Tests due to a left side strain and rib damage on Sunday.
Pattinson had hit an unbeaten 29 earlier in the day in the second test against Proteas. His innings helped Australia extend their lead over 400.
The left-arm pacer had left the field at the start of his second over on Saturday and didn`t return until Sunday, when he was allowed to bat in the second innings.
But he couldn`t bowl and didn`t return to the field in South Africa`s innings.
The Aussies however were dominating till the news came as they scalped South Africa’s top four batsmen for just 75 runs.
