Wellington [New Zealand]: South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock and New Zealand pacer Trent Boult both are in doubt for the third and the final Test beginning March 25 at Seddon Park as both are suffering from an injury.
De Kock, who injured himself in the field during the second Test in Wellington which the Proteas won by eight-wickets at the Basin Reserve, was not present at the start of Wednesday’s training session but was set to join the squad later, reports ESPNcricinfo.
However, in case De Kock fails to be fit for the final Test, the visitors have reserve gloveman, Heinrich Klaasen, in their squad.
On the other hand, Boult is recovering from an upper leg injury and is in doubt for the last Test.
According to New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman BJ Watling, Boult is not yet 100 percent fit and the team management would take the final call on his availability later this week. (ANI)
