Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa on Sunday named Rilee Rossouw as the replacement for Quinton de Kock in the Proteas squad for the remaining two Sunfoil Test matches against the West Indies to be played at St George’s Park and Newlands over the festive period.

De Kock has been ruled out by an ankle ligament injury sustained in the first Test match at SuperSport Park.

CSA selection convener, Andrew Hudson said: "Rilee has been knocking on the door for some time.

“He and Temba Bavuma shared a partnership of 343 at a run rate of almost four to the over in the recent winning series for South Africa A against Australia A.
“The fact that Rilee recently represented the Proteas in both the limited overs formats means that he will integrate easily into the Proteas squad system.”
Revised Test squad: Hashim Amla (Nashua Cape Cobras, capt), AB de Villiers (The Unlimited Titans, vice capt), Alviro Petersen (bizhub Highveld Lions), Dean Elgar (The Unlimited Titans), Faf du Plessis (The Unlimited Titans), Stiaan van Zyl (Nashua Cape Cobras), Temba Bavuma (bizhub Highveld Lions), Vernon Philander (Nashua Cape Cobras), Robin Peterson (Nashua Cape Cobras), Dale Steyn (Nashua Cape Cobras), Morne Morkel (The Unlimited Titans), Kyle Abbott (Sunfoil Dolphins), Kagiso Rabada (bizhub Highveld Lions), Rilee Rossouw (Chevrolet Knights).
