South Africa Cricket Team’s batter Keegan Petersen looks unlikely to feature for Australia Tests. Keegan has been one of the rising stars of South Africa. The batter knows how to tackle tough batting conditions as he is someone who can stick to the crease and play long and effective innings.

South Africa is all set to play a vital Test Series against Australia in December and it is expected to be quite a fascinating one. The winner of the Test Series most probably will edge closer to the final of the World Test Championship 2021-23 (WTC)

Keegan Petersen Injured

The right-handed batter injured his hamstring while fielding in the CSA T20 Challenge Final.  The incident took place in the sixth over of Titans innings when he tried to stop a boundary and in doing that he injured his hamstring. The batter was taken to the ambulance.

Scintillating Contest On Cards

Australia and South Africa both the teams have got some serious pace bowlers. The World Cricket will witness a riveting contest and it won’t be wrong to say that it’s a battle between South African pacers vs Australian batters as South Africa doesn’t have a promising batting lineup.

If Petersen is ruled out, then the team would be hoping that Bavuma fills his spot. Bavuma most likely will get the nod as the batter is one of the experienced statesmen in the team as earlier he had missed England Tthe est Series due to an injury. This Test Series will be under a new interim Head Coach in the form of Malibongwe Maketa as Mark Boucher’s tenure ends after T20 World Cup 2022.
