Rossouw replaced injured Quinton de Kock for West Indies tests

South Africa called left-handed middle ordered batsman Rilee Rossouw to join their squad for the remaining two tests against West Indies after Quinton de Kock was ruled out remaining series because of injury which says that AB de Villiers will take the keeping responsibility for the rest of the series with selectors have to decide whether to play seven batsmen or an extra bowler for the second test. The 25-year-old Rossouw, who has been struggling with finger injury for last 10 days, has played nine one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches for South Africa but, he is yet to represent his country in test match. He would compete with uncapped player Temba Bavuma for a place in the top seven if the Proteas decided to replace De Kock with a batsman, otherwise left-arm spinner Robin Peterson may get in to final eleven. On the other side South Africa has won the first test in by an innings and 220 runs. The second match will starts on Friday in Port Elizabeth
