Canterbury: South Africa fast bowler Marchant de Lange has been forced out of the tour of England by a lower back stress fracture. He's been replaced by allrounder Albie Morkel.

De Lange didn't get to play on tour as his back pain worsened this week, prompting a bone scan. He will require at least six weeks of rehabilitation, team physio Brandon Jackson said in a statement on Friday.

Morkel, who played his only Test in 2009 against Australia, recently played for Somerset in the English Twenty20 competition, and was to join the Proteas on Friday.
