Rabada's injury means he will be unavailable to play for for the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League.

Cricket South Africa have said Rabada has been sidelined with what it described as a "lower back stress reaction".

According to Cricbuzz, the 22-year-old felt tightness and discomfort during the Proteas' fourth and final Test against Australia in Johannesburg, which the hosts won by a 492-run margin to clinch the series 3-1.

The South African bowling sensation Kagiso Rabada's chances of participating in the IPL 2018 are slim as he suffers from a lower back injury. It will rule him out for three months, including a month-long break from all physical activity before undergoing rehabilitation programme.

Besides Rabada, Mohammed Shami and Trent Boult were the other top fast bowlers who were in the DareDevils squad.

Gautam Gambhir-led Daredevils would have surely looked upon Rabada as the pace spearhead, but will have to change their plans accordingly.

Rabada has played eight ODIs for South Africa this season and has featured in all 10 of their Tests, taking 56 wickets at an average of 16.98. Starc, whose services had been procured by Kolkata Knight Riders for a massive Rs 9.4 crore, withdrew with a tibial bone stress in his right leg, an injury that also kept him out of the Johannesburg Test. He had taken 23 wickets from four Tests at a stunning 19.26.
