Condition of the South Africa pacer Wayne Parnell, who left the field in the match between India A and South Africa complaining of shortness of breath while bowling, is expected to be known in a few days.

According to thepost.co.za, South Africa Cricket manager Mohammad Moosajee said, “Pericarditis is the inflammation of the pericardium, the outer lining of the heart while myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle… but we will wait for a proper diagnosis.”

Parnell spent an entire day on a heart monitor and was in the hospital for 48 hours, getting multiple tests done.
