South Africa's injury list continues to grow as wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock has been ruled out of the remaining four ODIs and the ensuing T20Is series against India.

De Kock suffered a left wrist injury while batting during the second ODI at Centurion on Sunday and needs two to four weeks to make a full recovery.

De Kock had a forgettable Test series with the bat and had scored 34 and 20 in the first two ODIs.
