South Africa fast bowler Beuran Hendricks will be out of action for at least three months with a back injury, which he picked up while playing for the A side in Australia in August.

Hendricks is out until at least December, according to his franchise, and will thus not play in the Champions League T20, which is a blow to the Cape Cobras as he was their highest wicket-taker in the SA domestic T20 tournament.

Cobras physio Shane Jabaar told <i>Cricinfo</i>: "He is going to go through a full rehabilitation process which starts quite gently because we have to take a long-term approach to these things.

"His injury was caused by a combination of workload, poor mechanics and losing his technique which happens when someone does a lot of bowling."

Jabaar added of workloads: "There is a constant increase in cricket, especially from about five years ago and it means that there is not much downtime for players.

"Where it gets tricky is when play for different teams they are managed in different ways so we have tried to get a system in place in South Africa were we can centralise things and know where each players is at, fitness-wise and injury-wise and hopefully that will help us going forward."
