Johensberg: South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen has been ruled out of the series-deciding third ODI against Pakistan on Wednesday (April 7) with a muscle strain.
The leading run-getter in the series for South Africa, with scores of 123* and 60 in the first-two games, van der Dussen suffered a grade one left quadriceps muscle strain that puts his participation in the succeeding T20I series also under doubt.
“The Proteas medical team will evaluate and assess his progress as the T20 series approaches and make a final call on his participation in due course,” Cricket South Africa said in a statement ahead of the toss.
After going down in the opener despite van der Dussen’s century, South Africa fought back in game 2 to level the series 1-1 with a narrow 17-run victory on Sunday.
