Rabada added to Proteas squad

Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has been added to the Proteas squad after recovering from an injury.

The pace ace was ruled out of the recent limited-overs series against England after sustaining a right adductor muscle strain towards the end of the 2020 IPL.

Having recovered from the injury, the 25-year-old has successfully gone through all the COVID-19 and pre-Bio-Secure Environment (BSE) entry protocols and is expected to join up with the squad in the bio-bubble on Monday afternoon.

The Proteas are currently playing the first Test against Sri Lanka in Centurion, which started on Saturday – Boxing Day – and is scheduled to be completed on Wednesday.

The second Test starts at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Sunday, January 3.
