De Kock ruled out of ODIs, T20s against India

De Kock ruled out of ODIs, T20s against India

Cricket South Africa didn't name a replacement for him, and Heinrich Klaasen, who finished as the third highest run- getter in the domestic one-day tournament here, is expected to make his ODI debut.

South Africa team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said: "Quinton suffered an extreme blow to the left wrist while batting in the second ODI on Sunday and felt severe pain and discomfort".

"This type of injury will require between two to four weeks to heal, which subsequently rules him out of the remainder of the ODI and T20 series against India".

It was a complete performance from India and come Wednesday, Mithali and her team will eye an encore, which will hand them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

The batting unit was particularly terrible on Sunday when it crashed to 118 all out - South Africa's lowest-ever ODI score on home soil. Seven months after a stupendous show in the World Cup, the Indian women's team shook off rustiness easily with a crushing 88-run win over South Africa in the series-opener on Monday.

The spin combination of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav once again to hot too for the South African batting order as they lost 8 out of the 10 wickets against the wrist spinners.

He Needs Time - Mauricio Pochettino Eases Pressure On Lucas Moura
One more change could be in the offing, with Klopp unlikely to start James Milner in back-to-back games in midfield. Spurs are also on a roll, and their win over Manchester United was arguably the most impressive of Week 25.

Overnight Rain and Snow
Light snow will be wrapping up early this morning, but as temps fall below freezing some areas will turn very slick. Icy conditions are expected across portions of Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and western North Carolina .

Consistency will give them a boost in what is surely a match of historic significance, albeit a small one, as India have never before won three matches in an ODI bilateral series on the South African soil.

All of this places enormous pressure on South Africa's young stand-in captain Aiden Markram.

Overall, the best partnership for South Africa has only been 76 for the sixth wicket between Du Plessis and Chris Morris at Kingsmead.

And the list has only grown with Quinton de Kock (left wrist injury) ruled out before the third ODI. De Kock hasn't made even one half-century in eight innings across the two formats.

De Kock's injury leaves South Africa without an opening batsman and their first-choice wicketkeeper, but he has gone through a torrid time right from the first Test in Cape Town.
