CAPE TOWN: Kagiso Rabada is likely to be fit in time for the World Cup. South African fans would welcome that piece of good news, delivered by Cricket South Africa doctor Mohammed Moosajee over the weekend. A recovery is “anticipated” in the next two to three weeks.

Concerns over Rabada’s availability for the World Cup surfaced after CSA asked strike bowler to return home from the IPL, where he was instrumental in Delhi Capitals reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

It is understood CSA told both Capitals and IPL that Rabada had a back niggle and needed rest and recovery time ahead of the World Cup. On Saturday, Moosajee said CSA’s medical team was being “extra cautious” in managing Rabada’s workload because of his history with back injuries.

“With Rabada‚ we are extra cautious because of two reasons,” Moosajee said on CSA’s official website. “He had a back issue that kept him out of the game for a protracted amount of time. Secondly‚ there’s his importance in the squad‚ so we’re managing his rehab and his return to play very carefully.
