    AB de Villiers and Morne Morkel have been ruled out of South Africa's upcoming two-Test series against New Zealand with injury. Faf du Plessis will stand in as captain.
    Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander's return to fitness and Wayne Parnell's first Test call-up since the Australia series in 2014 will ensure South Africa's pace pack has several options including Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris and Kyle Abbott.
