De Kock Ruled Out as South Africa’s Injury Crisis Deepens

Cape Town (February 05, 2018): South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock has been ruled out for up to four weeks with a wrist injury, officials said on Monday.

De Kock was injured during South Africa´s heavy nine-wicket loss to India in the second match of their six-game series in Pretoria on Sunday which the hosts lost to go down 2-0 ahead of the third fixture in Cape Town on Wednesday.This type of injury will require between 2-4 weeks to heal, which subsequently rules him out of the remainder of the ODI and T20 series against India.

Du Plessis (finger), Steyn (heel) and De Kock will now face a race against time to be fit for the first of four home tests against Australia that start on March 1.
