South Africa‘s Test series against England is knocking on the door. But ahead of that, South Africa will face a big blow. Their pacer Kagiso Rabada suffered an ankle injury, thus his made his availability uncertain. It won’t be a wonder if Rabada will be seen just cheering for his team. His assessment for the Test series against England, beginning at Lord’s on August 17, will be made after the series against Ireland.

On Tuesday, Cricket South Africa informed that the Proteas Medical team has been looking after Kagiso Rabada. He will be later kept under medical management and rehabilitation.

The test against England will carry WTC points. However, the South African team is already enjoying the highest position in the WTC table. South Africa has the highest possibility to play the final in 2023. South Africa has a win percentage of 71.43 percent of possible points. The upcoming T-20 matches against Ireland will provide solid plans to get prepared for the ICC T-20 WC at Australia.

Trector eager to play South Africa

Both South Africa and Ireland squads have reached Bristol before the series starts on August 3. Ireland’s in-form Ireland batter Harry Tector is eager to test their mettle against another strong side. However, in the last two series against, NZ and India had been impressive but failed to turn them into a win.

Trector said to the ICC,

“It’s been a mixed bag in terms of results, but the way we are playing is certainly improving. I think that’s the main takeaway of the summer so far.”

Trector further added,

The brand of cricket we are playing means that sometimes we will be bowled out for a low score. But that’s what you see with pretty much most international teams. I think you must accept that if you’re willing to get those big scores, and thankfully we’re seeing that more and more. That’s what we’re looking to build on, particularly as a batting unit going to a T20 World Cup in October.”
