South Africa call up new boy Rilee Rossouw

Johannesburg: South Africa on Sunday called-up uncapped left-handed batsman Rilee Rossouw to replace injured Quinton de Kock for the second Test against the West Indies.

The 25-year-old Rossouw has yet to play a Test with his international experience limited to nine one-dayers and three Twenty20 games.

De Kock injured his left ankle while warming up before play on the third day of the first Test at Centurion, a match South Africa wrapped up by an innings and 220 runs on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the West Indies have called up left-arm fast bowler Kenroy Peters as a replacement for Kemar Roach.

Roach injured his right ankle while bowling on the first day of the first Test and has been ruled out of the rest of the series which continues with the second Test at Johannesburg from Friday.

Peters, 32, has so far taken 190 wickets in 62 first-class matches.
