While South Africa is blessed with a potent pace attack but injury concerns have disturbed their preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. In the recently concluded edition of the Indian Premier league (IPL), key pacer Kagiso Rabada produced stunning displays of bowling to aid Delhi Capitals get into the play-offs of the competition.
The 23-year old cricketer was pulled back from the tournament by South Africa’s management after complaining about stiff back. However, team’s doctor Mohammad Moosajee is optimistic about Rabada being fit for the upcoming mega-event. Sharing the update of injury, he added that the Johannesburg born who is an extremely crucial part of South Africa’s World Cup team would need two to three weeks to be fully fit.
While he refrained from commenting on the time span required for Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi’s rehab but Moosajee said that even if they fail to get fit before the 50-over competition, South Africa has enough depth in their pace-bowling department.
