South African all-rounder Chris Morris has been ruled out for at least 8 weeks due to an injury to his left knee. The hard-hitting all-rounder was replaced by Dwaine Pretorius in the squad for the upcoming ODI series against Australia at home. Morris played with the knee injury for quite a while, before his condition deteriorated and that prompted the medical team to rule him out for at least 8 weeks.

 

Morris has been a vital cog in the South African unit as he offers great balance into the side. His exploits against England are still fresh in the memories, as his lower order blitz turned a certain defeat into victory and that turned out to be a series-winning knock.

 

South African team manager Dr. Mohammed Moosajee in his interaction with the press admitted the extent of Morris’ injury. “Chris has been carrying a chronic left knee patella tendon injury for the last eight months which we have treated and managed up to this point, he said.”The injury has flared up considerably over the last two weeks leaving us with no option but rest and rehabilitation to allow the knee time to fully recover.”

 

Moosajee hinted that Morris would be back for the home test series against Sri Lanka in December. “He will take no further part in the match against Ireland and the series against Australia and will target a return back to international cricket for the Sunfoil Test series against Sri Lanka in December,” Moosajee concluded.
