Injury concerns for Proteas

12:47 pm on 5 June 2013

The South African cricketers have a couple of injury concerns ahead of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament in Britain.

Fast bowler Dale Steyn is in doubt for their opener against India on Friday night with a side strain.

Quinton de Kock has unofficially joined the group as cover for wicketkeeper AB de Villiers.

Spinner Robin Peterson has a foot injury.

Steyn is the main concern, meaning Rory Kleinveldt is likely to replace him to form a three-pronged seam attack with Morne Morkel and Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
