INJURED DE VILLIERS RULED OUT OF TEST CRICKET FOR SIX WEEKS

 

AB de Villiers to be away from test cricket for the first time since his debut in 2004 for injury. Du Plessis to lead South Africa in the form of skipper at tests against New Zealand. 

 


South Africa is scheduled to play two test series against New Zealand this time in Durban from August 19 to 23 and at SuperSport Park  from August 27 to 31. 


AB de Villiers to stay away from International test cricket for six weeks due to an elbow injury. This is the first time he will not be able to play test matches since his debut in 2004. Faf du Plessis will be filling his place as captain in both the test series against New Zealand. 


Pacer Morne Morkel will also miss the series as he is presently suffering from mild back-pain. His absence will make the route for Wayne Parnell  to return to the team. The Proteas team will also check the fitness of Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander.


 "AB complained of pain in his left elbow while he was participating in the Caribbean Premier League and subsequent MRI scans revealed an impingement of the joint capsule." said Dr. Mohammed Moosajee, Proteas team manager.


He also commented, "Morne has been suffering from mild back pain of which scans and further investigation by a specialist revealed a bulging disk. He will also require rehab and a recovery period of between four and six weeks. We are hoping to have both players fully fit and available for selection for the start of the ODI series against Australia in October." 


South Africa test team:  Faf du Plessis, Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Stephen Cook, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Dean Elgar, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Vernon Philander, Dane Piedt, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Stiaan van Zyl.
