Before the start of the 2022 T20 World Cup, players of some teams have been ruled out due to injuries. The order also includes the name of South Africa, whose all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius in the squad was injured a few days ago and was ruled out of the tournament. South Africa have included all-rounder Marco Jansen as his replacement. The tall player has played in all three formats for his national team. At the same time, he was seen playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022.
Pretorius suffered a fractured left thumb during the third T20I match against India, due to which he was ruled out of both the ODI series and the T20 World Cup. Jansen was included in the series against India immediately and was also seen playing in the final match of the series. Now he has also got a place in the squad of T20 World Cup. Let us inform that Jansen was earlier included in the list of reserve players.
The addition of Marco Janssen to the main team has led to the addition of Lizad Williams to the traveling reserve. Andile Phehlukwayo and Bjorn Fortuyn are also in the reserve list with him.
Pretorius is the second player for South Africa who will not be able to play the World Cup due to injury. Earlier, leading batsman Rassie van der Dussen has also been ruled out due to a broken finger. Dussen suffered an injury during the Test series on England tour and was ruled out of the third and final Test of the series as well as the T20 World Cup.
