South Africa`s de Bruyn to miss third Test versus Oz for birth of his child


South Africa batter Theunis de Bruyn will miss the third and final Test against Australia next week as he is set to return home for the birth of his first child.

The 30-year-old came into the side for the Boxing Day Test in place of Rassie van der Dussen. Batting at number three, de Bruyn had scores of 12 and 28 in South Africa’s innings-and-182-run defeat in Melbourne. He also made headlines when Australian quick Mitchell Starc warned him for backing up at the non-striker’s end during the second innings.
