South African wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock will play no further part in the ongoing ODI series against India, due to an injury he sustained in the left wrist during the last ODI which India won by 8 wickets. He will also miss the following T20I series owing to the injury.
South African cricket team manager, Dr. Mohammed Moosajee broke down de Kock’s injury, saying, “Quinton suffered an extreme blow to the left wrist while batting in the second ODI on Sunday and felt severe pain and discomfort. Further investigation revealed severe bony bruising to the area, with associated swelling around the tendon in the wrist. 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. The Cricket South Africa medical team will aim to have him ready for the Test series against Australia starting next month.”
No replacement has been named for de Kock yet by Cricket South Africa. India are currently 2-0 up in the six match series, with the next match to be played at Newlands, Cape Town.
