Temba Bavuma ruled out of first Test between South Africa and England with hip injury

South Africa will be without middle-order batsman Temba Bavuma when the Proteas take on England in the principal Test, beginning on Boxing Day.

Bavuma - who turned into the primary dark South African to make a Test century on England's last visit in 2015/16 - is controlled out of the arrangement opener by damage.

The 29-year-old is required to be sidelined for somewhere in the range of seven and 10 days with a Grade 1 hip flexor muscle strain.

Bavuma was expected to speak to South Africa An in their well disposed against Engalnd, which got in progress in Benoni on Friday.

Rather, he will stay inaccessible until the second match in the four-Test arrangement which begins in Cape Town on January 3.

South Africa's selectors still can't seem to call up a substitution to the squad in Bavuma's nonattendance.

The group's main restorative official, Dr Shuaib Manjra, affirmed: "Temba Bavuma gave clinical highlights of a left hip flexor strain. An output done yesterday affirmed a Grade One strain of one of the hip flexor muscles. Temba will start his restoration program with an objective of coming back to play in seven to 10 days' time."
