The Proteas fast bowler has consulted a specialist and is being closely monitored by the Cricket South Africa (CSA) medical team. 

Rabada has played 11 matches for Punjab Kings in this season’s IPL, taking 11 wickets at an economy rate of more than 8 runs to the over.

The T20 World Cup kicks off on 1 June in the West Indies and USA with the Proteas in the same group as Sri Lanka, Netherlands, Nepal and Bangladesh.

The Proteas will travel to the Caribbean later this month and take on the West Indies in a three-match series before the global tournament.

Aiden Markram’s charges then start their T20 World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka on 3 June in New York.
