Castle Lager Proteas bowler, Morne Morkel, will be unable to bowl any further in the current Sunfoil Test against India at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium after spraining his ankle this afternoon.
Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee explained: " Morne landed awkwardly on his right ankle while fielding this afternoon. Clinical examination and a subsequent MRI scan confirmed a Grade 1 ankle sprain. The recovery period is usually 7-10 days and he is doubtful for the second test starting in Durban in less than a weeks time."
Morkel will bat in South Africa's second innings if absolutely necessary.
