Cape Town - JP Duminy is likely to miss the Proteas' next two Cricket World Cup matches after picking up an injury.
According to Netwerk24, Duminy picked up a side strain injury in last Sunday's 130-run loss to India.
While the Proteas' team management is yet to confirm the injury, it is believed that Duminy has a Grade 1 tear, which could keep him sidelined for up to 10 days.
Duminy underwent a scan on Tuesday after suffering in practice and he did not practice at all on Wednesday.
This follows the news that all-rounder Vernon Philander will miss Friday's clash against the West Indies in Sydney due to a hamstring injury.
