Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday announced that SA U19s veteran, Rabian Engelbrecht, was forced to withdraw from the ICC U19 World Cup squad due to a lower back strain.

This comes just two days before the squad is due to depart for the tournament which will take place in Australia.

Vincent Moore will replace Engelbrecht and has joined the squad for their final camp before departing for the biggest test of their lives.

CSA Youth Cricket Manager, Niels Momberg said: "This is really tough on Rabian, and from an experience point of view the team have taken a knock as he is the only player who has been to a World Cup. For Vincent Moore, this is a great opportunity for him to prove himself. He has improved a lot during the national academy and was selected as a fast bowler reserve for his efforts."

Engelbrecht will return home and will continue rehabilitation and hopes to be fit for the start of the South African season.
