Proteas fast bowler Anrich Nortje has been released from the squad for the second Test against the West Indies at the Wanderers, which starts on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old experienced mild groin discomfort during the first Test in Centurion, and as a precaution, has been asked to rest following an assessment by South Africa’s medical team.
A replacement has not been named.
Bowling coach Charl Langeveldt has also been released from the squad due to family reasons, making the Centurion Test his last in the role.
