South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada will miss the two Twenty20 internationals against Ireland this week because of a left ankle injury.

Cricket South Africa said on Tuesday the Proteas' attack leader will continue his rehabilitation in an effort to be fit for the Test series against England, which starts on August 17 at Lord's.

Rabada skipped the last T20 against England last Sunday but his medial ligament injury will need more treatment, CSA said, ruling him out of the T20 games against the Irish in Bristol on Wednesday and Friday.

South Africa lead the World Test Championship standings ahead of a three-Test series against a revived England, who have won their last four Tests under new captain Ben Stokes and new coach Brendon McCullum.
