Punjab Kings pacer Kagiso Rabada has returned home from the IPL due to a lower limb soft tissue infection, the South Africa cricket board has announced on Wednesday.

South African pacer represented PBKS in the IPL, taking 11 wickets in as many games. Punjab has already been eliminated from the IPL Play-off race and will play its last league game on May 19.

Rabada didn’t feature in Punjab Kings IPL 2024 match against Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru as well. RCB hammered PBKS by 60 runs in the match played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala and thus knocked Sam Curran and co out of the playoffs race.

“The 28-year-old consulted a specialist on arrival in South Africa and is being closely monitored by the Cricket South Africa medical team,” said Cricket South Africa (CSA) in a statement.

CSA also said that the injury is unlikely to impact Rabada’s preparation for the T20 World Cup in the Americas next month.

“His preparation for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in West Indies and USA is not expected to be affected,” CSA added.

South Africa opens its World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka in New York on June 3.
