JP Duminy has been ruled out of the Cape Cobras squad for the Champions League Twenty20 after the South African batsman picked up an injury during the tri-series in Zimbabwe.
Duminy, 30, a reliable middle-order batsman, joined a growing list of star players missing out on the CLT20 due to fitness related issues. Aussie pacer Mitchell Johnson is a doubtful starter for Kings XI.
The left-handed Duminy's absence will leave a huge gap in the Cobras batting order. He is the second highest scorer for the South African side, with 981 runs from 40 matches. (Also read: Twenty20 cricket, the right way to spread cricket?)
