Quinton de Kock is a doubt for South Africa for this week's third and final test against New Zealand after the wicketkeeper suffered a finger injury during the eight-wicket victory over the hosts last week.

The 24-year-old missed training on Wednesday and team officials told reporters in Hamilton that a decision on whether he played would not be made until Friday.

Furthermore, his participation in the IPL is also a doubt as of now as the team doctor has a full recovery plan of around four to six weeks for de Kock.

"There is every likelihood he will pull out. Every time he catches the ball, stress goes on that area. He is going to need a period of recovery," said Mohammed Moosajee.

Uncapped Heinrich Klaasen could take the gloves for the match at Seddon Park, which starts on Saturday. South Africa is leading the Test series 1-0.
