AB de Villiers has been ruled out of the remainder of the Champions League Twenty20 after fracturing a finger on his left hand during a Royal Challengers Bangalore training session at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. In his absence, either Tillakaratne Dilshan or Arun Karthik will keep wicket.
The injury could put de Villiers in doubt for part of Australia's tour of South Africa, which begins with a Twenty20 international on October 13. South Africa's team manager Mohammad Moosajee told ESPNcricinfo that de Villiers will consult with Cricket South Africa's hand specialists on his return home. "He will probably be coming back to South Africa tonight," he said. "He will see our panel of hand specialists after that, and we will decide what the plan of action is.
"I understand from the Bangalore physio that he broke the third finger on his left hand during a fielding drill. It is quite serious, that's why he is coming back."
