    Quinton de Kock ruled out of Johannesburg Test


    Castle Lager Proteas wicket-keeper batsman, Quinton de Kock, has been ruled out of the third Sunfoil Test match against England starting at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Thursday. De Kock sustained a freak injury to his right knee on Wednesday evening, and will be replaced by Dane Vilas in the starting XI.

    Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee explained: Quinton slipped and sprained his right knee at home late yesterday afternoon. Initially he didnt think it was too serious but woke up after midnight in pain and with a swollen knee. He will have investigations done later today to ascertain the extent of the injury.

    Vilas is en-route to Johannesburg from Port Elizabeth, where he was supposed to be playing a Sunfoil Series four-day match for the Cape Cobras against the Warriors. AB de Villiers will take the gloves if the Proteas field first until Vilas arrives.

    The 30-year-old is coming off a career-best 216 not out in last weeks round of Sunfoil Series matches. His last Test for the Proteas was against India last month.
