“South Africa’s Pacer Set to Sit Out New Year’s Test Clash Against India”

South African fast bowler Gerald Coetzee has been ruled out of the New Year’s Test against India due to pelvic inflammation. Coetzee experienced discomfort in his pelvis during the previous Test, and his condition worsened as he continued to bowl on the third day. Scans revealed the extent of his injury, prompting the team management to release him from the squad as a precautionary measure. No replacement has been named for Coetzee. South Africa, leading the series 1-0, will look to maintain their strong performance in the ICC World Test Championship when they face India in the second Test at Newlands in Cape Town.
