Kemp and Gibbs in injury scareZac Gelman |
South Africa’s dream preparations for the 2007 World Cup have turned slightly sour with the news that Justin Kemp and Herschelle Gibbs have suffered injury scares.
Gibbs hurt a finger during a fielding drill and Kemp was hit in the toe whilst facing team-mate Charl Langeveldt in the nets.
South African management are hoping neither player will be forced to sit out the their first warm-up match against Ireland, in Trinidad & Tobago on Monday.
“We had both of them X-rayed and both have come back clear,” said the team doctor.
“There is no damage to the bone and they should not be affected too much.”
