South Africa's captain AB de Villiers has been ruled out of the home ODI series and away Test series against Australia because of a persistent elbow injury.

He will have surgery early next week and will need eight to ten weeks of recovery time.

De Villiers will sit out the five home ODIs - beginning on September 30th - and the three Tests in Australia in November, one of which will be South Africa's maiden day-night fixture.

He also missed the two Tests against New Zealand in August and the one-off ODI against Ireland because of the injury.
