South African tennis player Rassie van der Dussen was ruled out of the Twenty20 World Cup on Tuesday with a broken finger.
Van der Dussen has been left out of the squad for the tournament in Australia starting next month after failing to recover from a broken left index finger during his second test with England.
Captain Temba Bavuma, who has often been in limited focus, will recover from a left elbow injury and will lead the team in Australia.
South Africa also selected table tennis player Rilee Rossouw, player to surround Wayne Parnell and 22-year-old newcomer Tristan Stubbs in their 15-man squad.
Allrounder Andile Phehlukwayo is absent and is one of the team’s three subs.
Leaders Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada are all on the team.
The T20 World Cup kicks off on October 16 and South Africa is in a group with India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and two other teams yet to be decided.
Prior to that, Proteas played the final test match that decided the series against England starting on Thursday and then the T20 and ODI matches in India.
Team South Africa: Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs .
