Dwaine Pretorius ruled out of T20 WC

Dwaine Pretorius ruled out of T20 WC

Johannesburg, Oct 6 (UNI) South Africa all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius has been ruled out of the ODIs against India and the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia due to a fracture on his left thumb.
Pretorius, who was the joint-highest wicket-taker for South Africa in the T20 World Cup last year, sustained the injury during the third T20I against India on Tuesday in Indore.
"The nature of the injury requires surgical intervention and Dwaine will consult the Cricket South Africa designated hand surgeon on arrival in South Africa," CSA chief medical officer Dr Shuaib Manjra said. "Normal rehabilitation procedures will follow to ensure he speedily returns to playing cricket."
Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo are the all-rounders named in the reserves for the T20 World Cup, and one of them will likely replace Pretorius in the squad for Australia.
Pretorius is the second key player from South Africa to miss the T20 World Cup, middle-order batter Rassie van der Dussen was ruled out with a finger injury last month.
South Africa T20 World Cup squad: Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Rillee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, Dwaine Pretorius (ruled out, replacement yet to be named)
Reserves: Bjorn Fortuin, Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo
