Cape Town - The extent of the injury is not fully known, but it seems that Proteas batsman Rilee Rossouw could be on his way home after injuring his shoulder in Wednesday's win over Australia in Providence. 

South Africa triumphed by 47 runs to register their first win of the Triangular Series, but there was a worrying moment when Rossouw left the field after diving to save a ball over the boundary rope with Australia 95/8. 

Rossouw left the field immediately and was taken for scans. 

While there has been no official word from Cricket South Africa (CSA) yet, reports suggest that Rossouw has a dislocated shoulder and will return to South Africa. 

Faf du Plessis is expected to be available for Saturday's clash against Australia aftyer recovering from a finger injury, but the Proteas might aslo consider a replacement for Rossouw should he return home as expected. 

Rossouw made just 7 against Australia, but top scored with 61 against the West Indies in South Africa's first match.
