South Africa have suffered a big blow in form of pacer Anrich Nortje, who has been ruled out of a three-match Test series due to persistent injury. Cricket South Africa will not announce any replacement for the fast bowler.

In 12 Test matches, he has taken 47 wickets at an average of 28.1. The 28-year old has formed an impressive partnership with Kagiso Rabada and his absence could make things easy for the visitors, who are looking to win their maiden red-ball series win in the rainbow nation.
