De Villiers still not fit

Sep 22, 2016 | CN Staff |

South African captain AB de Villiers will not be in the team for their one-off ODI against Ireland due to injury. De Villiers who has been suffering from elbow injury has himself decided to take rest to get fit before 5-match series against Australia.


De Villiers was out of South African team after suffering from elbow injury that he gained during Carrebian Premier League during their tour against New Zealand.


Under his absence Faf du Plessis was the captain of Proteas. As de Villiers is out of the team du Plessis will lead the team against Ireland. Rilee Rossouw who has recovered from shoulder injury will be the substitute of de Villiers.


De Villiers will undergo fitness test next week before the start of the series against Australia. If he fails to pass the test he will have to undergo surgery of this left elbow which will force him to be out of cricket action for six to eight weeks.
