South African all-rounder JP Duminy has been ruled out of the team`s upcoming tour to Australia due to a shoulder injury.
Announcing the news, South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee revealed that Duminy had aggravated the already-existing shoulder injury during the recently-concluded series against Zimbabwe. Moosajee further said that Duminy`s return would now depend on the time he takes to recover from the injury.
"JP aggravated a pre-existing shoulder injury during the recently concluded series against Zimbabwe. The injury will require surgical management thus ruling him out of the immediate tour of Australia and the upcoming MSL," Sport24 quoted Moosajee, as saying."At the moment we can`t say how long he will be out for, that is dependent on the results from the surgery," he added.
