Delhi Daredevils suffered a major blow when their main strike bowler was finally declared unable to play in the Indian Premier League.

"Kagiso has been diagnosed with a lower-back stress reaction which will rule him out of cricket action for up to three months".

The South African speedster, who was on the Delhi DareDevils roster, is sidelined with a lower back stress reaction and will be out of action for up to three months, a Cricket South Africa media release said on Thursday. He was retained by the capital based franchise using the RTM card for a whopping 4.2 crores.

The 22-year-old finished the series against Australia with a total of 23 wickets, earning him the man-of-the-series accolade.

In case Daredevils calls for replacement for Rabada it has to be approved by the IPL technical committee.

South Africa's team manager Mohammad Moosajee informed that a consequent scan revealed the injury. It will rule him out for three months, including a month-long break from all physical activity before undergoing rehabilitation programme.

Delhi kick off their IPL 2018 campaign on April 8 against Punjab in Mohali, the first match of the season for both teams.
