Johannesburg: Hard-hitting batsman David Miller will miss South Africa's remaining three one-day internationals against Sri Lanka because of a finger injury, Cricket SA said yesterday.

Miller, who hit 117 not out in South Africa's 121-run win in the second match in Durban on Wednesday, injured his right little finger when he dived in attempting to make a catch in the outfield during Sri Lanka's innings.

Team doctor and manager Mohammed Moosajee said Miller would be out of action for between seven and 10 days. He will be available for a tour of NZ later this month. The third ODI against Sri Lanka is on Saturday in Johannesburg. SA captain AB de Villiers hailed an “almost perfect performance” after his team crushed SL Faf Du Plessis (105) and Miller (117) put on 117 for the fifth wicket.
