Philander out of second Test
First Test man of the match Vernon Philander has been ruled out of the second game with New Zealand due to the recurrence of the hamstring injury.
The 27-year-old took seven wickets in victory by an innings and 27 runs at Cape Town last week, a contest he had been doubtful for, including 5-7 in six first-innings overs.
Philander has been replaced by fellow seamer Rory Kleinveldt, whose two Tests came in Australia during November, for the second and last match in Port Elizabeth that starts on Friday.
South African team manager Mohammed Moosajee, also a medical doctor, said: "Vernon's hamstring strain will require a seven to 10-day recovery period at the very least.
"Although he is responding to treatment received over the past few days, we feel it's unlikely that he'll recover in time for this week's Test match. With the Pakistan series less than a month away, it's not worth the risk of aggravating the injury."
