Wellington - Proteas batsman Hashim Amla underwent emergency surgery after sustaining an injury to the groin region, while batting in the third Test match against New Zealand in Wellington.

He suffered extreme discomfort after the blow, and was taken to hospital for assessment.

“Hashim underwent emergency exploratory surgery resulting from blunt trauma sustained to his groin region,” Proteas Team Manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee said.

“He spent the night in hospital and was discharged this morning. The surgeon is satisfied with  the outcome and expects Hashim to make a full recovery, however, it is unlikely that he will be able to take further part in the current Test match at the Basin Reserve.”
