The 33-year-old, who suffered the injury during the third T20I against India in Indore on Tuesday, is set to undergo a surgery. In his place, all-rounder Marco Jansen has been added to the ODI squad. Incidentally, Jansen is also one of the three reserves for the T20 World Cup, with Andile Phehlukwayo and Bjorn Fortuin being the other two.
“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.”
