Reeza Hendricks has been called up to the South Africa T20I team as cover following the injuries of Temba Bavuma and Heinrich Klaasen. Bavuma was diagnosed with a right hamstring strain on Monday, while Klaasen sustained a right hip injury during the team’s warm-up session ahead of the KFC T20 series opening match against Australia in Johannesburg on Friday evening.

Hendricks joined the team on Saturday evening in preparation for the second fixture in Port Elizabeth today. Both Bavuma and Klaasen will continue to be treated and will be reassessed ahead of the start of the second match. 

The Proteas were bowled out for just 89 in the firs T20I at The Wanderers and suffered their biggest defeat in the shortest format. This despite the returns of Faf du Plessis and Kagiso Rabada in the XI. They will look a much-improved show in the second game.
