England seamer James Anderson has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test series against South Africa after sustaining a left rib injury in England’s second Test victory at Newlands.

The Lancashire bowler underwent an MRI scan in Cape Town on Wednesday morning.

Anderson felt tightness and discomfort at the end of the morning session on day five and was only able to bowl eight overs during the day. He finished with figures of 2-23 from 18 overs in South Africa’s second innings.

He will return to the UK in the next few days.

Somerset seamer Craig Overton will remain in South Africa as cover.
