BREAKING: Rabada injury blow for Proteas

On Monday, the Proteas T20 International (T20I) squad arrived in Bristol ahead of their two-match T20I series against Ireland. However, in notable news, it was also confirmed that Proteas paceman Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out of the series following a review of his left medial ankle injury by the Proteas medical team.

He will continue medical management and rehabilitation and his progress will be closely monitored in preparation for the upcoming three-match Test series against England later this month.  

The first Test starts on 17 August.
