Internet Desk: A depleted South African cricket team is in deep trouble now as their star wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock, has been ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series as well as the forthcoming T20I series due an injury on his left wrist.

De Kock got this injury during the second ODI at Centurion on Sunday and need atleast two to four weeks to recover from it.

Proteas team manager, Mohammed Moosajee, explained the injury: “ 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 two-four 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.”

The selectors will not pick any player in place of him in the squad.
