England spinner Graeme Swann will be rested for the remaining one-day internationals against South Africa, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Wednesday.

James Tredwell has been called up as cover.

“(Swann) has admitted to carrying a long-term elbow problem in his right arm and will take the next three matches off before returning for the three-game Twenty20 series,” a statement on the ECB website said.

South Africa lead the five match one-day series 1-0 after an 80-run win in Southampton on Tuesday.

Game three is at The Oval in London on Friday.
