McLaren in for injured Parnell

Ryan McLaren has been called up to South Africa's Twenty20 squad to replace the injured Wayne Parnell.

Parnell has been ruled out for two weeks due to an injury and as such will miss out on the South African's three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand.

McLaren last turned out for the Proteas in the shortest format of the game in October of 2010 but did face England in an ODI earlier in the year and was called up to the Test squad in Australia earlier in the month as cover for Jacques Kallis.

The three T20Is form the first part of the Black Caps' tour to South Africa which also includes two Test and three one-dayers.
