De Kock may return for ODI next week
Proteas batsman and wicket keeper, Quinton de Kock, may return to the team earlier than expected and play in the final One Day International (ODI) against the West Indies in Centurion next week Wednesday.
The 22-year old injured his ankle during a warm-up session in December last year.
"Depending on the medical committee, if they're okay with Quinton de Kock playing the last game [he'll play]," Proteas coach Russell Domingo said.
"So that's a possibility for us, and hopefully we can get him back into international cricket next Wednesday. He will join us on Friday [in Port Elizabeth], and train with us for the next few days and hopefully we'll have him ready for next Wednesday in Pretoria."
De Kock was only supposed to return for the ICC World Cup in February, but has made a quicker than expected recovery and is currently at full fitness.
The South African squad will be travelling to Port Elizabeth on Thursday, for their fourth ODI at St Georges Park on Sunday.
