Ahead of India's tour of South Africa, the hosts faced a big blow as their key fast bowler Anrich Nortje is ruled out of the 3 match Test series due to a hip injury. He hasn’t been in action since the T20 World Cup.

Nortje has been quite consistent with his performances in all the three international formats for South Africa. He looked in great shape during the West Indies tour and grabbed 8 wickets in 2 matches. 

The South African are certain to miss the talent of this skilled bowler as they don’t wish that the Indian side should be able to win their first Test series win in South Africa.

No replacement has been announced for Nortje as the squad already consists of seven pacers. Duanne Olivier is speculated to replace the pacer in the playing 11, rest we will wait for the further announcements from the Cricket South Africa.
