Cricket-Tsotsobe gives South Africa injury scare

12:05 pm on 13 February 2011

South Africa received an injury scare as pace bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe strained his right knee during the team's eight-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in yesterday's warm-up match of the cricket World Cup.

Tsotsobe sent down a couple of overs without success before falling awkwardly while trying to stop a boundary and was writhing in pain barely a week before the tournament gets underway.

Team manager Mohammed Moosajee says he will be assessed and they'll take a call from there.

South Africa bowled Zimbabwe out for 152, it took the Proteas only 24 overs to reach the target.
