JOHANNESBURG - Proteas all-rounder JP Duminy has been ruled out of the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 match against the West Indies in Nagpur on Friday due to a hamstring injury.

Duminy injured his left hamstring during the match against Afghanistan on Sunday, with subsequent scans on Monday confirming the extent of the injury.

Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee, says, "The scans, which were done yesterday, confirmed our clinical suspicion of a hamstring strain which means that he will be ruled out of Friday's game against the West Indies in Nagpur."

He adds that the plan is to try and get him ready for our last round-robin match against Sri Lanka in Delhi on Sunday.

"Our physiotherapist, Brandon Jackson, has already started with treatment and rehab and for now we will have to wait and see how he responds to the plan."
