Charl Langeveldt seems certain to miss the remainder of the Test series against England after breaking a bone in his left hand, although he will be able to play in the remainder of the Cape Town Test.

Langeveldt was struck on the hand while trying to avoid a bouncer from Andrew Flintoff. Although he continued his innings, he was clearly in some distress and he remained in the dressing-room as England's innings started while the medical team assessed his injury. He later took the field after a pain-killing injection and with his hand in a splint.

A subsequent X-ray revealed that Langeveldt had suffered a displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal, which almost certainly rules him out of the rest of the Test series and might mean that he will not play again this season.
