Shock to South Africa, star injured in IPL, doubt on playing T20 World Cup


johannesburg. Before the ICC T20 World Cup, the South African team has suffered a big setback. The team’s star fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has been injured. He suffered a leg injury while playing for Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League. Because of this, he has now returned home before the end of the tournament. Kagiso Rabada, the leader of South Africa’s fast bowling attack, has returned home from the Indian Premier League due to a chat in his leg. The country’s cricket board gave this information on Wednesday.

Rabada represents Punjab Kings in IPL. He has taken 11 wickets in 11 matches in the current season. The Punjab team is already out of the race to qualify for the play-offs and will play its last league match on May 19. “The 28-year-old (Rabada) sought specialist advice upon his arrival in South Africa and is being closely monitored by the Cricket South Africa medical team,” Cricket South Africa (CSA) said in a statement.

Punjab Kings are out

Punjab Kings team is already out of the playoff race from the Indian Premier League. After playing 12 matches, the team has only 8 points from 4 wins and is at the bottom 10th position in the points table. It still has two more matches left, by winning which the team can improve its position in the points table.

CSA also said that the injury is unlikely to affect Rabada’s preparations for the T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and America next month. “His preparations for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup to be held in the West Indies and the United States are not likely to be affected,” CSA said.

South Africa will start its World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka on June 3 in New York.
