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.

Proteas' Cricket World Cup itinerary:

February 27 - South Africa v West Indies, Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney (05:30 SA time)

March 3 - Ireland v South Africa, Manuka Oval, Canberra (05:30 SA time)

March 7 - Pakistan v South Africa, Eden Park, Auckland (03:00 SA time)

March 12 - South Africa v United Arab Emirates, Westpac Stadium, Wellington (03:00 SA time)
