South African batsman AB de Villiers will not take further part in the Champions League T20 as he fractured a finger on his left hand while training with the Royal Challengers squad at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

De Villiers

The injury to de Villiers comes two weeks before Australia's tour of South Africa beginning October 13 with a T20 International.

De Villiers was named South Africa's ODI captain after Graeme Smith stepped down in June. The home series against Australia will be his first assignment after taking over the side.

The Royal Challengers will play Kolkata Knight Riders here today.
