Cape Town — Things went from bad to worse for the Proteas on Friday as they lost spinner Keshav Maharaj to a shoulder injury in the final session of the second Test in Pune.
The left-arm orthodox pulled up at the end of his 50th over and was in clear discomfort before being pulled from the field.
A member of Proteas management later confirmed that the 29-year-old had been sent for scans to further examine the injury.
It has been a tough couple of days for Maharaj and South Africa, with India eventually declaring late on day two on 601/5 thanks largely to a majestic 245* from skipper Virat Kohli.
Maharaj's return was 1/196 from his 50 overs, following his match figures of 5/318 in the first Test.
He did, however, pick up his 100th Test wicket on Friday when he had Ajinkya Rahane caught behind for 54.
