De Kock Injury Needs 4-6 Weeks

South African team manager, Mohammad Moosajee, who is also a doctor confirmed that De Kock wonat be a part of the IPL. He needs at least four to six weeks to recover from the injury.

The risk is that if he doesn’t have that four to six weeks rest, and he further aggravates it, it could jeopardise his participation in the Champions Trophy.” Mohammed Moosajee, South Africa’s team manager, who is also a medical doctor, said.

De Kock is the second overseas player in the Delhi Daredevils squad after his South Africa teammate JP Duminy to pull out from the IPL 10.
