Quinton de Kock has been ruled out of the three-match T20I series against Pakistan. The wicketkeeper batsman sustained a groin injury during the fifth ODI against Pakistan, and will need a period of treatment and rehabilitation to make a full recovery. Cape Cobras’ Janneman Malan has been called up as replacement.
“Quinton sustained an injury to his left groin while fielding during the last ODI on Wednesday,” South Africa team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said. “He will be unable to take part in the T20I series against Pakistan and we are hopeful he will be fit for selection for the Test series against Sri Lanka starting in Durban on February 13.”
