London: South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the World Cup with a shoulder injury, tournament organisers announced on Tuesday.

The International Cricket Council said in a statement that it had approved pace bowler Beuran Hendricks as a replacement for Steyn for the remainder of the tournament.

 

"Bowler Steyn has suffered a second shoulder injury which has not responded to treatment and has ruled him out of bowling for the foreseeable future," said the ICC statement.

"His replacement Hendricks is a left-arm fast bowler."

The 35-year-old had been battling to overcome a shoulder injury in time for Wednesday's clash with India in Southampton, with South Africa under huge pressure after defeats in their opening two matches of the tournament.
