Beleaguered South Africa suffered a major blow yesterday when fast bowler Morne Morkel was ruled out of the rest of the Champions Trophy with a leg injury.

Morkel limped off while bowling his seventh over during Thursday’s 26-run loss to India, and MRI scans confirmed a grade one injury on the left quadricep, with recovery expected to take three weeks.
